Iran state TV accuses BBC of hacking website

Iran's state TV has accused the BBC of hacking its website to change the results of a poll about Iran's nuclear program, the Associated Press has reported. The British broadcaster's Farsi language service reported that the poll showed 63% of those who took part favoured halting uranium enrichment in exchange for an end to Western economic sanctions. The BBC denied the allegation and said the claims were "both ludicrous and completely false, and the BBC Persian Service stands by its reporting."
