Syria nixes BBC accreditation over ‘fake news’ – Times of India

Syria’s information ministry has cancelled the BBC’s media accreditation, accusing the British public broadcaster of biased and fake news in its coverage of the war-torn country. The announcement came days after BBC Arabic released an investigative documentary about the illicit drug trade in Syria, where they highlighted links between the estimated multi-billion dollar industry and the Syrian army as well as members of President Bashar Assad’s family. The ministry said the decision was made after “warning the channel that it has broadcasted its misleading reports relying on statements and testimonies from terrorist entities and those hostile to Syria”.
