Al Jazeera launches Balkans news channel

Qatar-based news network Al-Jazeera has launched a 24-hour television channel in the Balkans, BBC has reported. Al-Jazeera set up the channel by purchasing a local TV station, NTV 99, in Sarajevo last year, investing millions of dollars to improve the facilities. The new service is based in the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo, but also has offices in Serbia, Croatia and Macedonia. It will broadcast in Serbo-Croat.
