Euronews plans Persian, Turkish broadcasts

ImageLYON, France (AFP) — The pan-European television news channel Euronews said on Monday it planned to start broadcasting rolling news in Persian and in Turkish this year.

Broadcasts in Persian, spoken in Iran and Afghanistan, are planned by the end of the year, said the broadcaster based in the eastern French city of Lyon. Turkish broadcasts will start sooner, on January 30.

Iranian authorities tightly monitor foreign-language media in the country and the BBC has accused them of trying to jam satellite broadcasts of its own Persian-language service there.

The two new services will be broadcast from Lyon by satellite and cable as well as online, like the station's existing channels in eight other languages, which include English, French, Russian and Arabic.

"This way we will be broadcasting in all the major languages of the Europe, Middle East and Africa zone," Euronews president Philippe Cayla told AFP.
