The Guardian has published extracts from those emails - showing al-Assad sought help from Iran, the couple exchanged videos mocking the protesters, and details of Asma al-Assad's luxury shopping sprees.

Gulf News asks if he can still be persuaded to step down - while the National focuses on encouraging defections from within the regime.
