Al-Jazeera English launches

A fascinating development on the international media scene. And exciting for me to see that not one but two former colleagues from Focus on Africa are among the reporters highlighted in the first minute or so of the video – Farai Sevenzo and Rageh Omaar. And I know of at least one other who is a correspondent for them in Europe.

I’m watching the process with great interest, although unfortunately I can’t actually watch the channel itself since I don’t have a satellite dish.
