Google News Launches Four Arabic Editions

Google News is now available in Arabic for four countries: Egypt, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. The editions are just like the original Google News, with computer-generated aggregate headlines.

Also like the original, they include niche headlines for Business, Sports, Entertainment, etc.

With over 40 million Arabic speaking in the world, Google says this is just the beginning of expanding their News product to the Arabic-speaking world. They plan to release additional Arabic editions of Google News in the future.
