Egypt shuts down four TV stations

Posted By : J Rock on Tuesday, 3 September 2013 | 09:16

An Egyptian court has ordered the closure of four television channels that have been accused of sympathising with the Muslim Brotherhood.

They include the Brotherhood's own station, Ahrar 25, and the Egyptian arm of Al-Jazeera.

Meanwhile, the Egyptian army has launched helicopter strikes against suspected militant targets in the Sinai peninsula, killing a number of people.

The army is trying to assert control over the area bordering Gaza.

The closure of the television stations follows a crackdown on media seen as sympathetic to the deposed President Mohammed Morsi, who was overthrown by the army on 3 July, and the Muslim Brotherhood he comes from.
