美国之音、BBC和德国之声谴责伊朗干扰广播 VOA, BBC, Deutsche Welle Condemn Iran for Blocking Broadcasts

美国之音、英国广播公司和德国之声谴责伊朗当局非法干扰它们对伊朗的广播。这三家国际广播电视电台星期五发表联合声明,指责伊朗干扰它们共享的卫星信号。它们说,伊朗此举违反了国际公约,并呼吁卫星运营商对伊朗施压要求其停止干扰活动。

美国国务院说,伊朗企图封杀有关星期四德黑兰反政府抗议活动的几乎所有新闻报导,这显示伊朗当局“害怕自己的人民”。报导称伊朗还关闭了电话和互联网服务。伊朗当局指责国际媒体在去年有争议性总统选举之后帮助煽动动乱。在去年6月总统艾哈迈迪内贾德当选连任后,伊朗爆发了大规模抗议活动。

Voice of America, the BBC and Deutsche Welle have condemned Iranian authorities for what they say is the illegal jamming of their broadcasts to Iran. The international broadcasters released a joint statement Friday accusing Iran of jamming their shared satellite. They said the move violates international agreements and called on satellite operators to pressure Iran to stop.

The U.S. State Department said Iranian attempts to block nearly all media coverage of Thursday's anti-government protests in Tehran show the government there "fears its own people."Iran also reportedly shut down phone and Internet services. Iranian authorities have accused international media of helping stir the unrest following last year's disputed presidential election. Massive protests erupted after the June election, which returned President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power.
