Which is the most important picture from the Mandela commemoration event?

All the newspaper this morning are running this photo of Neil Kinnock's daughter-in-law and Danish Prime Minister, Helle Thorning-Schmitt taking a selfie with David Cameron and Barrack Obama at the Nelson Mandela Commemorative event at the FNB football stadium in Johannesburg. In my view it was disrespectful, even if it does show that our World Statesmen are just as starstruck on each other as everybody else.

For me though the picture that really mattered was the one of Obama shaking the hand of the Cuban President, Raul Castro. If that is the start of a thaw in relations between the USA and Cuba then it will be very signicant indeed.
