TV Station Closed in Algeria over s3x scene

Date:

Algerian authorities have ordered the closure of a private TV station after it broadcast scenes deemed “offensive”, the official APS agency said.

The Audio-visual Regulation Authority (ARAV) “has decided to definitively close the El Adjwaa channel”, APS reported late Monday.

The decision came after the channel broadcast an American film including sexually explicit scenes between a near-naked man and woman on Sunday night.

Outraged internet users shared images of the scenes widely on social media.

ARAV said the scenes were “offensive and contrary to the values of our society and our religion”.

The channel apologised on Facebook for what it called “a terrible mistake” and bid “farewell” to its viewers.

ARAV last year temporarily shut down the private El Hayet TV after a controversy over Algerian resistance hero Emir Abdelkader.
