The Huffington Post has launched its first African edition in the form of Al Huffington Post Maghreb, a French language version of the international news site focussing on Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria.

Editor-in-chief, Arianna Huffington, announced the new venture alongside private investors Alix Etournaud and Fares Mabrouk, saying: “A month after launching our first Asian edition, in Japan, we're thrilled to be bringing the HuffPost platform to Africa and inviting people in Maghreb to add their voices to the growing global conversation.

“And the way Al Huffington Post Maghreb came to be is the best evidence of the power of that conversation: Alix and Fares were inspired by our French edition, Le HuffPost, and came to us with the idea of expanding to Maghreb, which we’re delighted to be doing.”

The new spin-off will have a separate office in each country employing up to eight journalists each and will report on events such as the Arab Spring and resultant social media growth which is shaping the region.
