Banned TV stations

An Egyptian administrative court has banned four TV broadcasters from operating.

The recent decision is evidence that a tough approach is being taken towards the Muslim Brotherhood, following the fall of former Islamist president, Mursi, in July 2013.

The four TV stations were banned after showing the Muslim Brotherhood in a positive light.

Al Jazeera Live Egypt was one TV station to be banned. A further station, Al Hafez, which had allowed radical Islamist clerics air time in the past, was banned in August 2013.
