Marhaba! Introducing HuffPost Arabi

LONDON -- Marhaba from London, where we're launching HuffPost Arabi, our 14th international edition, in partnership with Wadah Khanfar and Integral Media Strategies. While all of our other editions around the world focus on one country, HuffPost Arabi will span the entire Arab World -- comprised of 377 million people living in 22 countries, stretching from Mauritania in the northwest corner of Africa to Oman on the eastern tip of the Arabian Peninsula. So much coverage of the Arab World is from the outside looking in, and the voices of the people most affected by what's happening are frequently unheard. Our original reporting by independent journalists will showcase the richness of the Arab world -- political debates and business news, but also arts and cultures, religions and traditions, food and human stories. And I'm particularly excited about HuffPost Arabi's blog platform, where anyone with something to say can share their perspective (in text, video or image) on any subject from politics and religion to cooking, poetry, recipes and personal stories.
