Readex announced today that it will launch a Web-based edition of the
Foreign Broadcast Information Service Daily Report in Fall 2007. The
Daily Report, issued by the U.S. Foreign Broadcast Information Service,
has been the fundamental record of political and historical open source
intelligence for the United States government for nearly 75 years.

The Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Report: Series 1:
Middle East, Africa and South Asia, 1974-1996-the first series in this
new online edition-includes a wealth of transcripts of broadcasts and
news from the Arabian Peninsula; Central, East, North, Southern and West
Africa; and the Indian subcontinent-all translated into the English
language. Many of these materials are first-hand reports of events as
they occurred.

Series 1: Middle East, Africa and South Asia contains more than 400,000
pages from foreign press materials, news transmissions and radio
broadcasts that are invaluable for understanding the issues and events
that preceded the current crises within the region. Students and
scholars are afforded local perspectives on such events as the Camp
David Accords, the rise of Ayatollah Khomeini, Somalia's invasion of
Ethiopia, Indira Gandhi's assassination, Angolan independence, the
Iran-Iraq War, the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, the Gulf War, Israel's
peace agreement with Jordan, Nelson Mandela's release from prison,
Soviet intervention in Afghanistan and more.
