Al Jazeera In Cairo Being Shut Down, Press Credentials Revoked: Egypt State TV

taniada:

“Egyptian state TV reported Sunday morning that the Al Jazeera office in Cairo is being shut down and Al Jazeera reporters are losing their press credentials in Egypt.

Al Jazeera correspondent Dan Nolan tweeted the news at about 11 a.m. local time, adding that Al Jazeera’s licenses were revoked, per state media.

Nolan quickly added, “Don’t worry we’ll still report what’s happening in #Egypt no matter what new restrictions they put on us.”

Another Al Jazeera employee Evan Hill put the news this way: “State TV announces Al Jazeera’s broadcasting license and press cards are being revoked. Our bureau is packing up.”“
