The request has been rejected as invalid. The explanation for
rejection is below:

According to the Language proposal policy, Language committee may
approve just a project which intends to be written in one language.
Thus, this proposal is invalid. If you want to create multilingual
Wikinews, please create a page Multilingual Wikinews and start
discussion about the idea at wikinews-l. --Millosh  06:16, 3 March
