Dramatic language dominates American online coverage of the Iranian missile strikes on US targets in Iraq.

The LA Times says "long-simmering tensions between Washington and Tehran erupted into fiery explosions and fears of all-out war" when the strikes were launched - while the Politico website suggests it's "perhaps the biggest international crisis to test Trump yet".

The New York Times suggests the raids were not entirely unexpected, as "reports from American intelligence agencies of an imminent attack from Iran had intensified" on Tuesday.

An anonymous official also tells USA Today that troops stationed at one of the bases targeted - Al Asad - had advance warning of the incoming missiles, so could scramble for cover.

Meanwhile, in the UK media, the Times reports that up to five RAF Chinook helicopters are likely to be dispatched to Iraq within days, joining four that are stationed in the northern city of Erbil.

The paper says the aircraft could be used to remove some of the 1,400 UK military and civilian personnel currently in the country supporting the fight against the Islamic State group.

'End of a nightmare'

Several of the front pages show pictures of a British teenager leaving Cyprus with a towel covering her face - after she was given a suspended four-month jail sentence after being found guilty of lying about a rape claim.

The Guardian believes the case, which has been been met with a backlash from women's rights groups, "speaks to the fears of many women - who live not only with the fear of sexual assault, but what might happen them after such an attack".

"End of the nightmare," is the headline in the Daily Mirror. It says the 19-year-old has endured "five months of hell", including a spell in prison, and is determined to clear her name.

The Sun has an interview with the teenager, who thanks members of the public for their messages of support.

"What kept me going", she says, "was the people who got in contact to say they believed me".

'Bank trap warning'

Elsewhere, the outgoing governor of the Bank of England tells the Financial Times he's optimistic for the City of London's prospects once Brexit is delivered - despite concerns about a potential global recession.

Mark Carney, who leaves his job at the end of the month, says the world economy is heading towards a "liquidity trap" - where central banks struggle to reverse a downturn by the usual means such as interest rate cuts.

Mr Carney also urges the UK not to align its financial rules with Brussels after Brexit - in the hope of negotiating a better trade deal with the EU. "It is not desirable at all", he suggests, "to tie our hands".

And the Daily Telegraph reports that the spoon-bending magician, Uri Geller, has answered the call from Prime Minister Boris Johnson's most senior adviser - Dominic Cummings - for "weirdos" and "misfits" to apply for jobs in government.

The paper claims that in his covering letter, the psychic takes credit for Mr Johnson's election victory last month, having given the Conservative leader a spoon "energised with mind positivity".

Mr Geller is currently living in Israel - but a source says he's "100% serious" about joining the team at Downing Street, if Mr Cummings sees "the potential value of having him on board".
