LONDON:-
Britain’s Independent newspaper is to disappear from news stands next month after its Russian owner said the 29-year-old title would only publish online , in the starkest sign yet of the pressures weighing on the newspaper industry. The paper launched by a group of journalists in 1986 with the slogan ‘Independent, it is - are you?’ has become Britain’s highest-profile casualty of the change in news reading habits brought about by the internet.–Reuters
