TEHRAN – Iran on Monday ordered the Arabic satellite television Al-Jazeera to “temporarily close” its Tehran bureau after controversy over its coverage of ethnic clashes, officials said.

“We have ordered the temporary closure of the Al-Jazeera bureau,” Mohammad Hossein Khoshvaght, director general of the culture and Islamic guidance ministry, told AFP.

“This suspension will last for as long as is needed for our experts to examine the possible actions of the Al-Jazeera channel to provoke subversive elements in the troubles that took place.”

Three people were killed and 200 arrested in fighting between ethnic Arabs and Iranian security forces in an oil-rich province bordering Iraq last week, officials said.
