Iran’s state TV charged Wednesday that the BBC hacked its website to change the results of a poll about Iran’s nuclear program. The BBC denied the allegation.
The British broadcaster’s Farsi language service reported that the poll showed 63 percent of those who took part favored halting uranium enrichment in exchange for an end to Western economic sanctions.
The TV report Wednesday said the actual figure was 24 percent, and the rest favored retaliation against the West with measures like closing the strategic Strait of Hormuz, a key to exporting oil from the Gulf.
In a statement, the BBC said the claims were “both ludicrous and completely false, and the BBC Persian Service stands by its reporting.”>>>
