Swedish newspaper LT is launching a weekly web cast in Arabic
A Swedish newspaper has launched a weekly news show in Arabic to reach the diverse population in the city of Södertälje.
The Länstidningen Södertälje newspaper premiered its new web cast last night. The show will be published on the site every Thursday at 6 p.m. local time.
‘‘There’s such a big part of the population that hasn’t yet learned Swedish but have the right to access stories about local news. This is in line with our democratic mission; to reach as many people as possible in our distributing area,’’ says LT’s editor-in-chief Anna Liljehag to her own newspaper.
Around 49 per cent of the inhabitants in the municipality of Södertälje is born outside of Sweden, according to Södertälje Kommun’s web site.LTLänstidningen SödertäljeAnna Liljehag
