Instead of concentrating its reporting force in Egypt to replicate saturation coverage already available everywhere, the Toronto Star has nine journalists covering “the Arab Awakening” from Morocco, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, U.A.E., Yemen, Lebabon, Kuwait, Tunisia, and, of course, Egypt. The result is a riveting and varied text-and-photos portrait of a region in flux, including a series of feature stories from each country that has so far included despatches from Carole Murphy in Riyadh and Joanna Smith in Amman
