Government Closes Baghdad Based TV Station

On Sunday government forces took over the Baghdad office of the Egypt-based Al-Baghdadia during their broadcast of the church raid that killed at least 52. The station has said that two of its employees were arrested and have been charged with terrorist activities.

The reason for the shutting down of the station midbroadcast is as of yet unclear but it seems to be related to the fact that one of the insurgent gunmen had contacted the station through a hotline expressing their will for negotiation.

The station has now called for a sit in and asked the international media to co operate with them and show solidarity. They believe that this act was simply a crackdown on press freedoms and the right to broadcast the will of the terrorists.

If this is the case then it is an inexcusable action as of yet though the Iraqi government has not commented.
