LONDON (AP) - The Huffington Post has launched a website in Britain, giving Europe its first version of the popular news hub.

The Huffington Post U.K. has lined up a coterie of high-profile bloggers to bolster its coverage of politics, entertainment, style, world news and technology. Former Prime Minister Tony Blair, Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Sarah Brown, wife of former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, will pen columns along with celebrities like Ricky Gervais.

Wednesday’s launch is one part of co-founder Arianna Huffington’s strategy to expand abroad. It follows the launch of Huffington Post Canada in May. Huffington is also developing a site for France.

Huffington was appointed president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group after AOL bought it in February.
