Dili, Dec. 19 (Lusa) - A new Portuguese language newspaper appeared on the streets of Dili Friday, the second Lusophone title to be launched in the new nation since its independence 18 months ago.
The first edition of the weekly, "O Semanário", carried a frontpage interview with Dili`s prime minister, Mari Alkatiri, as well as other prominent Timorese.
The new Lusophone newspaper, which sells for USD 0.50, fills the gap in the market caused by the demise earlier this year of "Correio de Timor", the country`s first wholly Portuguese-language journal.
