Libya is the story of the moment but what is interesting is that none of the nationals have anyone in Benghazi or even Tripoli.

The Guardian leads with Palestine again, though arguably there is a more interesting story in the Middle East at the moment. The other papers all lead with the terrible economic news except for the Mail which has an interesting analysis of National Insurance payments.

I have been waiting for Robert Fisk to write about Tunisia all weekend and he finally does so tonight in the Indy. The Guardian and The Times have almost identical stories (expect that to change by tomorrow morning as they frantically change things for the second edition), The Mail has Nick Clegg and The Telegraph reports on a speech Cameron will make.
