Israel's Ha'aretz newspaper has named a new editor-in-chief. Aluf Benn, a political journalist and columnist, has been at the paper for more than two decades.
He replaces Dov Alfon, who has served three years as editor-in-chief.
Mr Benn, whose work has been published around the world, has covered almost every key event in modern Israeli history.
