'George Zimmerman's trial will be as divisive as OJ Simpson's'

The US press reacts to George Zimmerman being charged with the murder of Trayvon Martin - and Ken Livingstone cries in public.


The Washington Post says the court's verdict must be respected, even if Zimmerman is acquitted, but the Guardian says it's silly to pretend this process isn't highly political.

El Pais says Greece's newly announced election is set to see the rise of extremists - while Kathimerini says the only way to preserve the bailout is for the two main parties to go into a coalition.

The Independent for its part reports on London's mayoral election - and the tears of Ken Livingstone.
