BBC condemns interference

The BBC has condemned what it described as “deliberate, intermittent interference to its transmissions to audiences in Europe and the Middle East” which has also hit a number of other broadcasters in the region.

The BBC World News And BBC Arabic television channels and BBC World Service radio services in English and Arabic have been affected. “Deliberate interference such as the jamming of transmissions is a blatant violation of international regulations concerning the use of satellites and we strongly condemn any practice designed to disrupt audiences’ free access to news and information,” said a BBC spokesman.
