DOHA Iraqi authorities have revoked the operating licence of the pan-Arab satellite network Al Jazeera and closed its offices in Baghdad, accusing it of violating government guidelines issued in 2014 to regulate media “during the war on terror.” Al Jazeera, based in Qatar, said it was dismayed by the action. "We remain committed to broadcasting news on Iraq to Iraqi people, our viewers in the Arab world and across the world," the channel said in an emailed statement. Rights groups have criticized Iraq's media guidelines, which restrict journalists from covering insurgent movements and require them to report in favorable terms on government forces #United States #Argentina #United Kingdom #Iraq #Entertainment #opinion

Kurd-Shi'ite clashes in northern Iraq kill ten, key road cut | Reuters

TUZ KHURMATU, Iraq Clashes between Kurdish and Shi'ite Turkmen paramilitary forces in northern Iraq have killed at least 10 fighters and cut a strategic road between Baghdad and the oil city of Kirkuk, security and medical sources said. Violence in Tuz Khurmatu, 175 km (110 miles) north of the capital, has become a near monthly occurrence between the armed groups - uncomfortable allies against Islamic State since driving the jihadist militants out of towns and villages in the area in 2014. A small explosion just before midnight near the local headquarters of two rival political parties sparked armed exchanges between the communities that spread to most neighbourhoods and continued into Sunday afternoon, according to security sources. #Business #Middle East #Argentina #United Kingdom #Iraq #opinion #article
