Actor Aziz Ansari accused of sexual assault, but is it just 'revenge porn'?

IN THE WORLD PAPERS - Wednesday, January 17: We look at reaction to the repatriation deal that sees Bangladesh sending Rohingya people back to Burma. Also, after Aziz Ansari is accused of sexual assault, some wonder if the #MeToo movement has reached a tipping point. Rupert Murdoch's ex-wife is accused of being a Chinese spy - in a publication that Murdoch owns. A famous French tapestry is being loaned to the UK and a 4,000-year-old family scandal reveals two mummies with different daddies!

Aziz Ansari and #MeToo: Should there be dialogue on what does and doesn't constitute sexual misconduct? That's what the Washington Examiner argues here. The Daily Beast, meanwhile, says this latest allegation of sexual assault against Ansari has derailed the #MeToo movement.

Wendi Deng: Rupert Murdoch's ex-wife is accused of being a Chinese spy, according to US officials who warned Jared Kushner about his family's friendship with the Chinese-born Deng. The story was broken by the Wall Street Journal - which is owned by Murdoch.

Finally, a 4,000-year-old family scandal is brewing in Egypt as the Telegraph reports that two mummies, believed to be brothers, actually have different fathers!
