The inquiry into Baha Mousa's death painted a " devastating picture of military culture ", says the Guardian.

It says prosecutors will consider bringing fresh charges but the Daily Telegraph asks if that is necessary as what happened was "mercifully rare" .

The Independent's Robert Fisk says that when he questioned military officers about the attack, he heard the same "arrogant" response as when he reported attacks in Northern Ireland.

He said it " wasn't the brutality that was systematic. It was the lying ".

'Regime change'

The 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attack sees Tony Blair - who was in office at the time - tell the Daily Mirror defeating Islamic extremists will take a "generation of effort" .

In an interview with The Times , the former prime minister renews his criticism of Iran which he blames for helping to prolong the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"Regime change in Tehran," he says, "would immediately make me significantly more optimistic about the whole of the region".

'Limited communication skills'

Lord Winston's warning about the dangers posed by nurses with a poor command of English is the main news in the Daily Mail.

It says the fertility expert told the House of Lords he was concerned about nurses from Romania and Bulgaria, many of whom had "limited communication skills , even in their own language".

The Independent says David Walliams' illness as he tries to swim the River Thames for charity is proving financially lucrative as there's an "outpouring of sympathy" for him.

'Ugly hats'

The Sun is angered by what it sees as the leniency of British fashion designer John Galliano's sentence for making anti-Semitic remarks.

A French court gave him a suspended fine of 6,000 euros. It says: "So much for France's pious grandstanding as the champion of decency and human rights" .

Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld has criticised the fashion at April's royal wedding.

He tells the Daily Telegraph guests were a sorry mess of "bad proportions", "ugly hats" and "short skirts on fat legs".
