BBC to add online news service in Serbian

The BBC will extend its expansion of the World Service by providing a digital-only service in Serbian, it said today.
This follows last year’s announcement of a major expansion to the BBC World Service, with services in 11 new languages and enhancements to existing services.

Director of the BBC World Service Francesca Unsworth says: “I’m pleased we’re able to bring our independent, impartial journalism to even more people around the world. This will also benefit our UK news services, giving us more capacity to report news from the Balkans and Eastern Europe.”

The BBC World Service previously provided a radio service and a website in Serbian, both of which closed in 2011.
