MidEast Christian News Celebrates Official Launch of Website

Mideast Christian NewsTo raise awareness and to educate about the situation of Christian minorities in the Middle East, MidEast Christian News (MCN) was officially launched last month with a sizeable team of professional journalists, reporters and photographers in Egypt and the Middle East.

Based in the Washington, DC, area, MCN provides timely news, cover stories, situation reports, interviews, and insightful analysis concerning the actions and decisions affecting the Christian minorities in the region, both in English and in Arabic.

In English, MCN is targeting media outlets, governmental and non-governmental organizations, human rights organizations, research centers, institutes, and universities in the U.S., Europe, and other parts of the world.

In Arabic, MCN is targeting local and regional media outlets in the Middle East to inform, educate, and raise awareness not only between the Christian minorities, but also toward the public opinion of the majorities, who are also suffering from the lack of information.

"The Christian minorities in the Middle East are suffering from decades of lack of information and misinformation on their predicament and the events affecting them," states the agency. "The local media seldom tell the truth and that the international media focus in general on the regional conflicts. Hence the severe need for professional coverage especially in the New Islamic Era that is starting in the region."

As MCN is an independent news agency - not associated with any local, regional or international religious or secular organization - it will provide a subscription-based service like many news agencies.

The agency's website is www.MCNdirect.com.
