The Huffington Post Arabi launched today! Arianna Huffington unveiled HuffPost Arabi at an event held today in London. In a blog posted to the site today, Arianna said,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.”

HuffPost Arabi is the 14th site in The Huffington Post’s ongoing international expansion.  The Huffington Post attracts 214 million unique visitors per month (comScore, global multiplatform, January 2015), making it the #1 news site in the U.S with the largest U.S. audience (multi­platform, June 2015 comScore) and the largest global audience (desktop, June 2015 comScore).

The Arabic-language site was launched through a collaboration with Wadah Khanfar and Integral Media Strategies to create a first-of-its-kind online news destination for the 377 million people living in 22 countries, from Mauritania (northwest corner of Africa) to Oman (eastern tip of the Arabian Peninsula) and the Arab diasporas everywhere from Brazil to Japan. HuffPost Arabi will offer a unique combination of original reporting by independent journalists and a blog platform for people across the Arab world to express their thoughts and opinions.

For today’s launch, selected content from the site has been translated into English:
