World Cup signal jamming from Jordan: report



Jamming of al-Jazeera's coverage of World Cup soccer in June originated in Jordan, the Qatar-based broadcaster said on Thursday.

Al-Jazeera, which secured exclusive rights from FIFA to broadcast the soccer spectacular in the Middle East and North Africa, suffered disruption of some of the matches, including the opening game between South Africa and Mexico.

"Al Jazeera confirms that the source of the disturbance on its sports channel during the World Cup came from Jordan," the Arabic language channel said.

Britain's Guardian daily said earlier Thursday the jamming was "traced to Jordan, which appears to have retaliated angrily after the collapse of a deal that would have allowed football fans there free access to the matches."

"Secret documents seen exclusively by the Guardian trace five episodes of jamming definitively to a location near Salt in Jordan, northeast of the capital Amman, confirmed by technical teams using geo-location technology," it said.

On its part, Jordan's government denied that it was behind the jamming.

"The Jordanian government categorically denies allegations made by unnamed sources to the Guardian newspaper that it was behind the jamming of al-Jazeera broadcast of the World Cup," a government official told AFP.

"These allegations are absolutely baseless and unacceptable," the official said on condition of anonymity.

"The government is ready to cooperate with any team of independent experts to examine the facts, and is certain that any such examination will prove these allegations false."

Egypt and al-Jazeera clashed over the interference during the competition after the channel alleged an Egyptian-managed satellite service carrying the signal was deliberately sabotaged.

Egypt denied any involvement in the jamming and called for an independent body to investigate.

Al-Jazeera charged up to $150 for one-month subscription packages or cards to watch the World Cup matches across the Middle East from North Africa to Iran.

The jamming has infuriated million of fans who had paid in advance for coverage of the tournament only to receive blank screens, pixelated images or commentary in the wrong languages.
