Al Jazeera: Egypt Is Jamming Our Satellite Signals

The conflict between Al Jazeera and Egypt continues. A handful of journalists from the channel may have been freed (though two local reporters remain in jail), but the country has also ordered Al Jazeera’s Egyptian affiliate to shut down.

Now the Qatar-backed news organization reports that after investigating the incident, it can “categorically state that Egyptian authorities are deliberately jamming its satellite signals and forcing it to change frequencies so viewers can tune in.”

From Al Jazeera:

Al Jazeera announced on Tuesday that independent experts had determined on the basis of extensive investigation where the jamming was emanating from and were confident about both the locations and who is responsible…

The investigators found that jamming from that location began on July 7 and was focused on Al Jazeera’s Nile Sat frequencies. The interference is continuing.
