Iranian journalists on Saturday condemned the US bombing of the Iraqi television's main station in Baghdad, stressing that the attack was 'a confession to defeat,' IRNA reported from Tehran.
Iran's Society for the Defense of the Press in a statement urged the parties involved in the Iraq crisis not to restrict the dissemination of information on the conflict, and not to prevent reporters from informing the public about the developments of the war.
The spokesman of the society, Mashallah Shamsolvaezin, said the US bombing of Baghdad TV was a confession of defeat against the power of mass media, stressing that Iranian journalists join international bodies to condemn the measure.
"The society calls on the `coalition forces' to adopt all possible measures to prevent the recurrence of similar incidents," he concluded in the statement.
