IR - Authorities boast of success in Internet filtering

(Reporters sans frontières)
Iran is doing its utmost to isolate its citizens from the rest of the world by purging the Internet of independent content, in the name of "morality", says Reporters Without Borders, noting that the authorities even brag about the success of their censorship. 'We are filtering more than 10 million websites', boasted the technical head of the Iranian company in charge of Internet censorship, on 11 September 2006.
