Thought Police Strike Again In Iran
A reformist newspaper has been shutdown and a news agency has been warned by Iranian officials to not report on the reformist movement by the government there.
It's just the latest attempt by the government to stop the flow of information to both Iranians and the outside world. Previously foreign reporters were arrested or kicked out of the country, dissidents were arrested, and Internet and cellphone access limited to stymie the flow of information. More recently, Twitter was hacked and shutdown by the "Iranian Cyber Army."
