Satellite Station Banned in Thi-Qar

Thi-Qar’s Provincial Council on Monday recommended that the office of al-Baghdadiya satellite TV station be closed after they praised the Baath Party .

“The recommendation came during the council’s meeting today,” Abdilhadi Mohan, the council’s deputy head, told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

Over a period of two days, the station broadcasted live interviews with Thi-Qar residents in which they criticized local political figures.

Nassiriya, the capital city of Thi-Qar province, lies 380 km south of Baghdad.
