Update: Censorship Creep...

Bahrain newspaper suspended over criticism of Ahmadinejad

Akhbar Al Khaleej newspaper logo On Monday, 22 June, Bahrain's oldest newspaper in circulation Akhbar Al Khaleej was suspended for the day after printing an article critical of  Iranian leaders and making reference to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's alleged Jewish origins.

The move would seem to have been made to avoid provoking unrest amongst the Shi'a majority in Bahrain.

Bahrain bans AJ-Jazeera

Al Jazeera logoBahrain has suspended local operations of the Qatari broadcaster al-Jazeera and barred a crew from travelling to the Gulf Arab state.

Al-Jazeera, with a record of tense relations with Arab states over its coverage of sensitive political topics, recently aired programmes on poverty and the treatment of Asian labourers, both sensitive matters in Bahrain.

Bahrain has temporarily frozen the office of the Qatari al-Jazeera satellite TV channel for breaching the professional media norms and flouting the laws regulating the press and publishing, the official Bahrain News Agency said.
