Qatar-based Al Jazeera’s Baghdad bureau closed by authorities

-

Iraqi authorities have once again closed Al Jazeera Media Network’s Baghdad office, saying the channel was inciting violence and sectarianism. Al Jazeera reported the news earlier this week, a month after Iraq’s Communications and Media Commission sent the company a letter saying its journalists were prohibited from working in the country.

The network said it was “shocked and bewildered” by the decision and plans to continue covering Iraq-related news. The Baghdad bureau has been closed by authorities before, and once was even bombed by US forces, killing a journalist.
