IN THE PRESS – Friday, May 21, 2021: We take a look at analysis of the ceasefire deal between Israel and Hamas. For most papers, the agreement is a win for Hamas and Benjamin Netanyahu, but a loss for ordinary Israelis and Gazans. We also look at emotional images of humanitarian workers saving or consoling migrants in Ceuta and finish with a damning report on BBC journalist Martin Bashir’s interview with Princess Diana in 1995.FRANCE 24 English YouTube Channel
