VOA: Venezuela Aims to Block CNN Spanish-language Service on Internet17 February 2017 | 06:13 | FOCUS News Agency
U.S.-based "CNN en Espanol" became unavailable on Venezuela's main cable providers from Wednesday, but it could still be seen on YouTube and various other websites.
"Managers are coordinating with all internet providers, using the available technology, to make the respective blocks," Andres Mendez, head of state communications regulator Conatel, told state media.
"CNN en Espanol" has often taken a tough line toward President Nicolas Maduro's government, but particularly irked authorities here with a report alleging passports were sold illegally at Venezuela's embassy in Iraq, including to members of the Hezbollah movement.
