Independent news from Afghanistan
Afghanistan Sun is an online news service established and launched in 2004 when the country had no Internet infrastructure.
An associated site, Afghanistan News.Net was the first online news portal established in 1999 to cover the country and was fully operational at the time of the September 11 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States and the subsequent U.S. military intervention into Afghanistan the same year.
Afghanistan Sun has been at the forefront of coverage in the country and continues to play a major part in bringing the latest news to life.
The site also provides coverage of international news & business and stories from Central Asia.
Administered by Midwest Radio Network on behalf of Big News Network, Afghanistan Sun is part of a global network of news sites covering almost every key locality on the planet.

Title: Afghanistan Sun
Mission: Afghanistan Sun was conceived in September 2002 to provide up-to-the minute national news, together with international headlines as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals. Each online publication has been modelled on a newspaper format for familiar readability by users. The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. Afghanistan Sun, effectively an online newspaper, provides coverage of Afghanistan and the Central Asia region. International news, business and finance stories are common across the network of sites, and are drawn from a number of sources including original in-house journalists and wire services. Afghanistan Sun and the other sites are administered by Midwest Radio Network.
