Iran's Fars News Knocked Off Web By US Treasury Order

• by Tyler Durden

Iran says the US Treasury Department shut down international access to its English news site due to new regulations related to US sanctions.

It's not the first time state-linked Iranian media outlets have had access to Western audiences blocked, with PressTV complaining in recent months about being blocked on YouTube and other popular social media sites; however it's less common for their domains to be blocked. 

Fars outlet issued a Farsi language tweet Friday which reads according to a translation

"From an hour ago, audience access to the Fars News Agency site has encountered a problem due to being placed on America's sanctions list, and the technical part of [this] News Agency is working to create access for the audience on the domain."
