The Iranian government has closed 17 foreign-based satellite networks’ offices on account of trying to create “sedition” among Muslims in Iran, a senior Iranian intelligence official announced on Sunday.

The government maintained that the networks using various Farsi names were

established by Iran’s enemies and tried to create rifts among Iranian Muslims.

Last August Iran also banned eight more U.K.- and U.S.-based satellite channels over similar charges.
