Internet Censored in Saudi Arabia and Iran


China is not the only country censoring Internet and anonymous blogging.. The leading Saudi blogger, Fouad Alfarhan, has been arrested in Jeddah on December 10, 2007 for exercising his freedom of speech on his popular blog alfarhan.org. Also in Iran 24 Internet cafés were closed and 23 people arrested including 11 women as government steps up online crackdown. This was done in a police operation in Tehran on 16 December 2007.

And I am afraid this is just the tip of the iceberg.
