Bahrain announced on February 9, 2015 the closure of the new pan-Arab news channel Alarab owned by Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal just nine days after its launch. The channel was on the air for only a few hours before programming was interrupted “for technical and administrative reasons”. AFP PHOTO / MOHAMMED AL-SHAIKH
