Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire – For the first time, an Ivoirian newspaper will be
regularly available on the Internet. The Internet version of Le Jour was
launched December 2, 1996. The World Wide Web address for the site is as
follows : http://www.africaonline.co.ci/AfricaOnline/infos/lejour.html.
The site will be updated daily.
The online version of the daily paper is made possible through a
collaboration between the paper and Africa Online, an Internet service
provider with offices in Abidjan (Cote d'Ivoire), Accra (Ghana) et Nairobi
(Kenya). A second daily paper in Cote d'Ivoire, La Voie, will be online
later this month, and the largest daily paper, Fraternite Matin, is
expected in early 1997. Now those interested in Cote d'Ivoire may follow
events in the country from their computer screens
