Internet may be disrupted in Iran for ‘security reasons’

Iran’s communications minister was quoted on Wednesday by the semi-official ISNA news agency as stating that access to the internet may be restricted for “security concerns” amid widespread protests over the death of a young lady in police custody.

“Due to security issues and the debates going on currently in the country, restrictions to the internet may be decided and applied by the security apparatus, but overall we have not had any bandwidth reduction,” Issa Zarepour said.
