        The Iranian government has barred access to the messenger service Telegram for most citizens of the country. Telegram boss Pavel Durov said on Twitter this Sunday.
The mobile app is the tool of choice for many Iranians to share videos and news about the ongoing protests against the government. There are both subscribable public message channels and the ability to directly exchange short messages.
Durov wrote in his tweet that the government had put the suspension down after "we publicly refused (…) to close peacefully protesting channels". Telegram is located in Dubai.
The Iranian authorities have also reportedly blocked Facebook, an online Instagram service, from sharing photos and videos. Previously, videos had surfaced on social media showing two bloody men lying on the floor. The video said they were shot by police officers. It is unclear, however, whether the recordings are genuine.
