Babylon & Beyond's content partner is offering a new interactive tool for people trying to keep up with the unrest across the Arab world and Iran. 

Carnegie logo As change quickly sweeps through the Middle East and North Africa, the Carnegie Endowment is offering unique country-by-country daily news roundups of developments in the region.

The roundups, collected from both Arabic- and English-language news outlets, cover the latest news from countries and areas in the Middle East currently experiencing protests and/or undergoing fundamental change.

They include updates from Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, the Palestinian territories, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia and Yemen.

The Middle East news roundups offer policymakers, academics, journalists and members of the general public informative and up-to-date brief daily news resources for their work and research on the region, provided in an easy-to-read account of the most recent and critical developments in the Middle East.

To access the feature, use the Carnegie interactive map.
