TEHRAN, Nov 17: Authorities have restricted internet access in Iran on Sunday, after nearly two days of nationwide protests triggered by a petrol price hike.
"Access to the internet has been limited as of last night and for the next 24 hours," an informed source at the information and telecommunications ministry said, quoted by ISNA. It came after state television accused "hostile media" of trying to use fake news and videos on social media to exaggerate the protests as "large and extensive".
Netblocks, a website that monitors online services, said late Saturday the country was in the grip of an internet shutdown."Confirmed: Iran is now in the midst of a near-total national internet shutdown; realtime network data show connectivity at 7% of ordinary levels after twelve hours of progressive network disconnections."    -REUTERS
