Al Ahram, founded in 1875, is Egypt’s largest news organisation. The newspaper publishes several editions; one geared towards a strictly Arab demographic and another aimed at international audiences, which has versions in both English and French. The newspaper was originally founded by the Lebanese brothers Beshara Takla and Saleem Takla, who were living in Alexandria at the time. In its early stages, it was a weekly newspaper that was published every Saturday. However two months after its creation it was turned into a daily newspaper and has been running as such ever since. During its time in publication Al Ahram has featured many prominent writers including the religious innovators Muhammad Abduh and Jamal al-Din al-Afghani. Furthermore, Nobel Prize winning writer Naguib Mahfouz, Salama Moussa, Taha Hussein, Yusuf Idris, Edward Said, Anis Mansour and Mohammad Hassanein Heykal have also written for the newspaper.
