English Online International Newspapers

For a change from the same old news stories from the same old news networks, here are links to English-edition online newspapers from other parts of the world. Nearly all of these are English-edition daily newspapers, with an emphasis on the Middle East and Asia. These sites have interesting editorials and essays, and many have links to other good news sources. We try to limit this list to those sites which are regularly updated, reliable, with a high percentage of "up" time. Click on "contact" below to report broken links, or to suggest other sources.

We test these links every day, and report the results as follows:

     Extremely reliable in the past ten days
     Sometimes up
     Mostly down during the past ten days
     Unchecked for various reasons
