Reuters and the International Herald Tribune created a supplement that the latter will insert weekly into its Middle East edition, beginning Thursday, Sept. 30.
The Guardian, in London, reported that the first four-page issue of Middle East with Reuters, will contain regional news, opinion and coverage of culture, drawing on more than 200 Reuters journalists who cover the Middle East.
“There is a thirst here for the IHT‘s brand of high quality, independent journalism as reflected in our growing circulation numbers,” IHT Publisher Stephen Dunbar-Johnson said.
The Guardian noted that the IHT has a new regional headquarters in Dubai, while for 18 months Reuters has recruited dozens more journalists at its Middle East bureaus, doubling its volume of Arabic-language news.
