AFP: The United States on Friday slammed Tehran’s “hypocrisy” in blocking international media, after the BBC said its Persian television service coverage of the protests in Egypt was being jammed in Iran.

WASHINGTON, February 11, 2011 (AFP) – The United States on Friday slammed Tehran’s “hypocrisy” in blocking international media, after the BBC said its Persian television service coverage of the protests in Egypt was being jammed in Iran.

“The recent arrests and effort to block international media outlets underscores the hypocrisy of the Iranian leadership,” National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said.

“For all of its empty talk about Egypt, the government of Iran should allow the Iranian people the same universal right to peacefully assemble, demonstrate and communicate in Tehran that the people are exercising in Cairo.”
