 Our pick of the best online journalism
Pakistan's third Afghan war
October 9: Pakistani reaction to the US bombings has been mixed. While the government has allowed the US to use its airspace, a violent minority has taken to the city streets in protest. Shahid Javed Burki of Dawn believes the problem is the same in many Islamic countries: groups oppose modernisation "not because it is against their religion but because it is against their interests".
Anxious days in Pakistan - New York Times
Special report: Pakistan

The spectre of bioterrorism
October 9: The outbreak of anthrax in Florida is raising fears of a bioterrorist attack. As Le Monde Diplomatique wrote three years ago, Washington strategists regard this type of threat as an "Achilles heel" for US power. The article concluded by recommending the following courses of action: first, spend more on welfare to combat the threat; second, conduct international relations on a democratic basis.
Le Monde Diplomatique (English)
Don't let fear help the enemy - South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Centres for disease control and prevention (US)

The influence of Iran
October 8: Iran has called the US missile strikes in Afghanistan "unacceptable", reports AFP - but there is a world of difference between its public announcements and its complex behind-the-scenes diplomacy, argues the International Herald Tribune. It bases its view on a conversation with an unnamed senior western diplomat.
International Herald Tribune
Iran and the US strikes - IranMania

Chechnya: sniper for hire
October 8: Galina Sinitsyna used to be a regional champion in the sports of shooting, swimming and long-distance running. Now she wants to go to Chechnya, where her son is fighting, to work as a sniper - but has been turned down for being too old. She tells the Moscow Times her desperate story.
Moscow Times

Mythmaking in the global village
October 8: The urban myth is becoming the global myth. Online Journalism Review explores how technology and disaster combine to feed our imaginations - by cluttering up our inboxes with nonsense.
Online Journalism Review

Opening new fronts in the media war
October 5: Debkafile is to the terrorist crisis what the Drudge Report was to the Lewinsky scandal - a low budget generator of impressive scoops, says Wired.com. Daily visitors have increased threefold in the last month to 120,000 but the site's blend of anonymous tips and unsubstantiated intelliegnce "means it often airs unfounded, inaccurate rumours while breaking legitimate news."

Australia's real position on asylum
October 4: After a series of embarrassing stand-offs, Australia expects the last of the asylum seekers it picked up in the Pacific to be offloaded on the island of Nauru by tonight. But as prime minister John Howard indulges in "poll-driven adhockery", The Age argues, his claim that Australia is generous to genuine refugees is misleading. A federal election date is expected soon.

Bioterrorism: the scenario
October 2: The John Hopkins Centre for Civilian Biodefence Studies has produced this role-playing scenario based around the threat of a terrorist smallpox attack. Frightening.
Centre for Civilian Biodefence Studies
Special report: terrorism crisis

Macedonia: a bedtime story
October 2: 'Once upon a time there was a little country of hardworking and generally contented people ... then one day the country was attacked.' A parable on the politics of revenge, from Macedonia's OK.mk portal.
Special report: Macedonia
Weblog special: Macedonia

Bribery in the former USSR
October 2: The Moscow Times illustrates the difficulty of getting around in Georgia - past policeman and border guards for whom bribery is a way of life. The refrain is always the same: 'How much can you give me?'
Moscow Times

Swaziland's sex ban
October 2: The king of Swaziland has decreed that young women must abstain from sex for the next five years to help stop the spread of Aids. He, incidentally, has seven wives: the reaction, needless to say, has been mixed. The New York Times reports.

Mixture of denial and panic - Sisonke Msimang, post to HIVnet.ch

Medicine's front lines tested by biological threat
October 1: As fears of attacks from biological weapons loom large in the US and UK, the Boston Globe considers how hospitals and doctors could spot and react to an outbreak.
