The ICC: arbiter of justice, or gravy train for lawyers?

By: Elena CASAS

Is the International Criminal Court the right place to try Laurent Gbagbo, should Hillary Clinton be visiting Burma, and how many people really turned out in yesterday's strike in the UK? We look at all this and more in today's round up of the international press.

The Economist asks if The Hague is really the best place to try Laurent Gbagbo, or if it wouldn't look more accountable to his victims to try him in Ivory Coast.

The Daily Beast is looking at why Hillary Clinton has really gone to Burma, and if its rulers' promises of reform really have any meaning - while the New York Times' correspondent has been to rural Burma, where the reforms aren't having much effect on people's lives.

We also look at the Sun, the Independent and the Guardian's very different takes on public sector strikes in the UK - and how the numbers of strikers can vary so wildly depending on who's counting.
