    Pan-Arab satellite television channel al Jazeera has plans to start up a channel in Turkish soon, one of the main languages of Islam, and one in Swahili, the language that is spoken in east, central and southern Africa where tens of millions of Muslims live. The news was confirmed to ANSA by sources in the network, which has its headquarters in Qatar. The news has been going round for several months, and was announced in the past days by Qatar's Culture Minister Hamad al Kawari in Doha, during a meeting with several visiting Turkish reporters. Local observers say that the initiative is part of the network's strategy of conquering new markets of Muslim viewers, inaccessible for the large Western networks like BBC and CNN. The Turkish channel would reportedly reach and audience of more than 90 million Muslims in Turkey alone, as well as all other Turkish speaking populations living in central Asia, up to the Chinese border.
