Top Stories 2/18

I thought I would try something different today. Here are the top stories (physically at the top of the website) from a variety of newspapers across the Middle East.

Al-Ahram (Egypt): 3rd anniversary of the assassination of Rafiq Hariri. Things are heating up in Lebanon.

Asia Times (no update today because of holiday): Iraq's oil minister Shahristani.

Gulf Times (Qatar): the ruler of Qatar got an award for outstanding Islamic contribution from the Grand Mufti of Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Tehran Times (Iran): Iran & UAE are trying to improve ties.

Turkish Daily News (Turkey): Should alcohol consumption be banned in the media?
