Al Jazeera English seeks global perspective for Sept. 11 coverage
NEW YORK (AP) ' Al Jazeera English will join many other television news organizations in New York and Washington on Sunday to mark the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. It also will have reporters on hand in Baghdad, Bali, Nairobi, Kabul and Islamabad.
The Qatar (GUH'-tur)-based network that started five years after the attacks said it hopes to bring a global perspective that domestic networks probably won't.
Al Jazeera English is also hoping its coverage can help American viewers get past a lingering sense of hostility toward the network.
