Shut Down Cellular Phone Services

The Interior Minister announced that it would shut down cell phone service in several major cities Thursday, in what the government calls an attempt to prevent terror attacks during Ashura.

The decision has been taken in the wake of requests made by provincial governments.

According to sources, cell phone service would remain shut at sensitive areas during Ashura processions on Muharram 9 and 10.
Cell phone service was turned off from 8 a.m. through 11 p.m. local time Thursday in 39 cities.

Ashura commemorates the death of the Prophet Muhammad’s grandson Imam Hussain.
