Report: Iran Jamming Radio and TV Programming

The government-appointed body that oversees Voice of America and other U.S.-sponsored broadcasts accused Iran on Thursday of jamming radio and television programming into the Middle East and eastern Europe.

The Broadcasting Board of Governors said that the jamming is coming from inside Iran and violates international telecommunications regulations. It said the interference is affecting VOA's Persian service, along with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty's and Farsi-language programming from Radio Farda. The jamming is also affecting the BBC, it said.
