More stations off air in Pakistan

More television stations have been taken off the air in Pakistan as the military-dominated regime widens its censorship.

The military was infuriated by television coverage six days earlier that showed thousands of supporters of the [suspended] chief justice [Chaudhry] shouting “Musharraf is a dog!” and “The generals are traitors!” at the gates of the supreme court. Since then all public meetings of more than five people have been banned in Islamabad and television stations have been ordered to stop live broadcasts of the chief justice’s rallies.
