Iraq suspends Saudi Arabian broadcasters -Al-Hadath TV

BAGHDAD, Oct 26 (Reuters) - Iraq has suspended Saudi Arabian state-owned broadcasters Al-Hadath TV and Al Arabiya, Al-Hadath said on Saturday, amid renewed anti-government protests that saw scores killed over two days in clashes with security forces and militia groups.

“The Iraqi government suspends the work of Al-Hadath and Al Arabiya,” Al-Hadath TV said on its news ticker while it carried footage of the protests.

Over 60 people were killed on Friday and Saturday. (Reporting by Ahmed Aboulenein; Editing by Sandra Maler)
