Eutelsat says BBC signal jamming originated from Syria
- Syria: Sunday, October 21 - 2012 at 02:39
The British Broadcasting Corp has said an unknown party is deliberately disrupting its broadcasts in the Middle East and Europe, the Associated Press has reported. BBC said that, together with other broadcasters, it has been experiencing "deliberate, intermittent interference" to its transmissions last Thursday, including BBC World News, BBC Arabic television channels and BBC World Service radio channels broadcast in English and Arabic. It did not name any specific suspect for the interference, but Eutelsat spokeswoman Vanessa O'Connor said the incidents of jamming began earlier last week and that analysis of the signal showed that it was deliberate and originated in Syria. Broadcasters have previously accused Iran of jamming satellite broadcasts to keep domestic audiences from getting access to international media.
