Jordan: Al Jazeera Interview Confiscated

Iraqi blogger Lady Bird claims that Jordanian authorities confiscated a tape containing an interview with Jordan's Prince Hassan from Al Jazeera‘s offices because of worries of the comments he made regarding his country's relations with Jordan. “This is one of the reasons that Al-Jazeera is special, other Arab media shall just give up, Al-jazeera they just don’t care. Although the Aljazeera tapes of the interview with Prince Hassan were confiscates by the Jordanian police but Aljazeera broadcast a special program talking about what was said in the interview. Prince Hassan is well known Arab intellectual, thinker and an Arab nationalist that is why the US prevented him from succeeding his brother King Hussein,” she explains.
