HuffPost Arabi shuts down, not giving reasons


(MENAFN) After three years of operation, Huffington Post has closed its Arabic edition, saying that HuffPost Arabi "will no longer be publishing content as of March 30" but gave no reasons for the termination.

"This was a mutual decision by HuffPost and our partners, Integral Media Strategies, as both organizations continue to re-assess and evaluate how and where each can best serve audiences in the region," said Louise Roug, HuffPost's international director.

The head of HuffPost Arabi, Wadah Khanfar, has already announced the launch of a new platform led by Integral Media called Arabi Post, an online publication that resembles HuffPost Arabi's editorial line.

The Huffington Post's French-language Maghreb edition, which covers Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria, will continue operating, Ms Roug said.

"We believe we can continue to best serve readers there through our global newsroom, the Opinion vertical and our Maghrebedition," she said.
