Daily newspaper

Founded by Lebanese publisher Kamel Mrowa in Beirut in 1946, Al-Hayat follows in the tradition of the Lebanese press. From 1988 onwards it received financial backing from the Saudi Arabian Prince Khalid bin Sultan, who later took it over completely. This pan-Arab paper, which publishes editions for the Gulf states and Lebanon, is politically closely aligned with the Saudi royal family. The paper is struggling financially and in June 2017 the print edition was discontinued in most countries and its offices in Beirut were closed.
