Dozens of journalists protest against the raiding of Iranian television channel Al-Alam
Dubai - Agencies

Dozens of journalists protest against the raiding of Iranian television channel Al-Alam Bahrain will stop broadcasting its channels on satellite operator Arabsat, to protest an Iran-led \"hostile\" media campaign, the state news agency BNA reported Saturday. \"The Information Affairs Authority (IAA) decided to stop broadcasting Bahrain bouquet on Arabsat, starting from June 1,\" BNA said quoting an English language statement.
The IAA criticised Arabsat for failing to heed repeated requests \"to take official measures\" against Iranian channels which also broadcast on Arabsat.
These channels, it said, were waging a \"hostile media campaign\" against Bahrain and Saudi Arabia \"to incite sectarianism and shake the security and stability,\" in the Sunni-ruled kingdoms.
The IAA said it had \"repeatedly requested\" Arabsat to take measures against the  Iranian channels since February 2011, when a month-long Shiite-led uprising began in Bahrain against the regime.
\"The executive body of Arabsat did not respond to these requests,\" the statement said.
In 2009, Saudi-based Arabsat and another Arab satellite operator, Nilesat, briefly stopped broadcasting the Arabic-language Iranian channel Al-Alam.
Tensions have escalated between Shiite Iran and its Arab neighbours in the Gulf, since a Saudi-led Gulf force rolled into Bahrain in March 2011 to boost the kingdom\'s security forces, where they then crushed a month-old uprising against the regime.
Iran has repeatedly voiced support for the protests in Bahrain and strongly condemned the deployment of the Saudi-led forces.
Al-Alam and Lebanon\'s Hezbollah\'s Al-Manar channel have provided full coverage of the protests dominated by their Shiite co-religionists.
