Huffington Post launches African edition
AOL launched Al Huffington Post Maghreb, its first edition for African countries, on 25 June.
The French-language version of The Huffington Post will be published with private investors Alix Etournaud and Fares Mabrouk and focus on the Maghreb countries – Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria.
The new venture is the latest in the The Huffington Post’s continued international expansion, and follows versions of the site in the US, UK, Canada, France, Spain, Italy and Japan. A German-language version is set to launch in Europe’s biggest market in the autumn.
