Why it matters: Editorial page editor Fred Hiatt said in a statement that the Arabic-language page "will make it easier for more readers to access free and independent commentary about the cultural and political topics that most impact them. The importance of this has become more evident since the murder of our own colleague Jamal Khashoggi, who saw very clearly the need for a forum such as this.” This will be the Post's "first designated destination for translated pieces."
