Snapchat Blocking Al Jazeera in Saudi Arabia

Posted by at 11:16 am on September 18, 2017

Snapchat has blocked access to Al Jazeera content in Saudi Arabia.

Snapchat said it was asked by the Saudi authorities to remove the Qatari-backed broadcaster’s Discover Publisher Channel because it violated local laws.

Qatar is in an ongoing dispute with Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the UAE.

“We make an effort to comply with local laws in the countries where we operate,” a Snapchat spokesperson said in a statement.

The four countries cut ties with Qatar earlier this year, accusing the country of supporting terrorism.
