Debut of Al-Jazeera International not expected until after summer

Published: 05.31.06, 00:48 / Israel News

The debut of the Al-Jazeera International news network in English, expected by the end of May, has been delayed and probably will not take place until September at the earliest.


The technical aspects of connecting a network that will operate out of four broadcast centers - in Doha, Qatar; London, Washington, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - have proven to be more difficult and time-consuming than expected, an official said. The planned offshoot of the influential Qatar-based Arabic network is to broadcast in English and is being viewed as a competitor to CNN and the BBC and has signed such news personalities as Britain's David Frost and American Dave Marash.
