ROME, NOV. 12, 2003 (Zenit.org).- The Pontifical Institute of Foreign Missions now has an online edition of its AsiaNews service.



The agency, which has been publishing social, cultural and religious news on Asia since 1986, started the online edition Nov. 1.

Directed by Father Bernardo Cervellera, an expert in Chinese affairs, this PIME agency offers daily news on the Asian continent, in Italian (see www.asianews.it). Plans call for editions in English and Chinese.

In response to long-standing requests from many bishops in Asia, the agency's directors will include contents of the Church's social doctrine on their Web site.
