Freedom of Speech: Arabsat, Nilesat cut Al-Alam broadcast

This is from Al-Alam’s website posted today:

”In a shock move against Al-Alam News Network, the Saudi-based Arabsat network and Nilesat in Cairo have taken the Arab language network off air.
The technical section of Al-Alam reported on Tuesday that the Iranian network’s officials have contacted the officials running the two satellite operators, but have received no response.
Arabsat and Nilesat are among several satellites on which Al-Alam television broadcasts its programs.
No further details are available yet.”

This follows on from my earlier post, on the current Iranian media censorship.
