Le Quotidien, a new daily recently launched in Tunisia, brings the number of French-language newspapers in the country to four. Published by the Dar Al-Anwar, Le Quotidien is the latest addition to the groups’ publications, so far put out only in Arabic.
Le Quotidien will begin life with an initial circulation of 30,000. Its editorial strategy is to be decidedly local, with the intention of showing “the true face of the Arab world."
Tunisia’s three other French publications are La Presse, Le Renouveau and Le Temps. There are also four Arabic dailies: Assahafa, Al-Horriya, Assabah and Ashourouq, which is also published by the Dar Al-Anwar. — (Albawaba-MEBG)
