UAE government blocks access to Huffington Post website

In a new assault on freedom of expression , the Huffington Post website was inaccessible in UAE after being blocked by the authoritis and the reason is still unknown.

Anyone who attempts to access the website in the UAE now receives this official message: “Access to this site is currently blocked."

 Huffington Post has not been notified of the reason for the block, but media sources said that the reason behind the block is due to "the website's ties with Muslim Brotherhood..

The Huffington Post was launched in 2015, and its editor is Anas Fouda, who was expelled by the United Arab Emirates because of his ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, although he confirmed that the relationship ended in 1995.

The UAE has already blocked Arab and foreign websites, such as Noon Post, UAE 71, Emasc, the New Gulf and Middle East Eye.
