Assahifa Al Ousbouia (Arabic: الصحيفة الأسبوعية, lit.'The Weekly Paper')[1] is an Arabic language weekly newspaper in Morocco.

History and profile edit

Assahifa Al Ousbouia was founded in 1998.[2] The newspaper is a sister publication of Le Journal Hebdomadaire, a now-defunct weekly news magazine.[3] Both were established by Aboubakr Jamai in the late 1990s under the names of Le Journal and Assahifa, respectively.[3]

In 2000, the Moroccan government closed down both publications.[3] They were later relaunched under their current names.[3]
