New global news site aims to make up for bureau cuts

A free website offering foreign news coverage to an American audience went live this week.

GlobalPost.com was set up by ex-Boston Globe journalist, Charles Sennott, in response to budget cuts across many US newspapers.

The site will initially span 50 countries, including Brazil and Indonesia, as well as emerging markets in China and India. It aims to supplement foreign coverage by other global news organisations.
