MCN is the first professional and independent News Agency specialized in covering timely, accurate and reliable events concerning Christian minorities in the Middle East.

MCN provides also cover stories, situation reports, and interviews about the actions and decisions impacting the Christian minorities in the region, both in English, targeting the international media, Governmental Organizations and NGOs, and Arabic, targeting local and regional media.

MCN has its own team of professional reporters in the Middle East.

The local media hide and distort reality, while the international Media fails to report regularly as they are focusing on the regional conflicts.

Our aim here is to fill this Gap.

MIDEAST CHRISTIAN NEWS is an independent agency, neither associated nor affiliated to any local,regional, international, religious or secular organization or group. MCN was founded by Dr. William Weessa, who has extensive experience in developing and managing news media services.
