The Jordanian government has reportedly shut down the Amman bureau of the Tehran-based English news channel, Press TV.

The report comes as Jordanian officials had earlier called on Press TV to apply for a renewal of its accreditation in 2009, which the satellite station had accordingly submitted to the concerned parties.

In June, Jordanian authorities revoked the press credentials of two Iranian satellite TV stations, the Arabic-language Al-Alam and the English-language Press TV.

It is amazing and interesting that Reporters Without Borders is on Press TV's side, not on Jordan's side in this case!
