WEDNESDAY'S front page of the Jamaica Observer, featuring US President Barack Obama on his re-election, has been featured among the 10 best global front pages by international magazine Foreign Policy.

The feature, which was posted Wednesday on the magazine's website — — describes the selection as "front pages... from around the world that you won't want to miss".

"Checking out how presidential elections play on the front pages of US newspapers — and stowing away those papers for posterity — is a favourite pastime of American politics (and a reminder of why some news is still best conveyed in old-fashioned newsprint). But news outlets in other countries also produce some gems," the feature, which was posted by Uri Friedman, read.

The other front pages making the top 10 are:

* De Standard (Belgium)

* Politiken (Denmark)

* The Daily Star (Lebanon)

* Liberation (France)

* Die Press (Austria)

* Die Welt (Germany)

* Calgary Sun( Canada)

* The Guardian (Britain)

* Deccan Chronicle (India)
