Iranian gov. tries to cut off Mahabad from the outside world

KURDISTAN, July 18 (DozaMe.org) - Connections to the Internet in the city of Mahabad in eastern Kurdistan are being cut off due to the violent protests in the city, according to the Kurdish news agency MHA.


The Iranian government are trying to cut off the Kurdish city from the rest of the world by controlling all Internet and telephone connections. People who have tried to call the Kurdish radio channel "Denge Mezopotamya" (Voice of Mesopotamia) to give them information about the ongoing protests, have been arrested and are being interrogated by Iranian intelligence.

The only channels to report about the ongoing protests to the outside world are the Kurdish satellite TV-channel Roj TV, the Kurdish radio channel "Denge Mezopotamya" (Voice of Mesopotamia) and the Kurdish news agency MHA. The Iranian government is therefore trying to cut off all communications between the people in Mahabad and the named Kurdish channels and news agency.

The radio channel "Denge Mezopotamya" is the main target of the Iranian government and all communications to this channel are monitored or cut off. According to anonymous official sources, everybody who has called to the radio station during the last two years are being investigated and called up for interrogation.

The protests in Mahabad against the killing of the PJAK sympathizer Shiwane Qadri continues.
