30m Iranians lose access to email

More than 30 million people in Iran have lost access to foreign email services such as Gmail, Yahoo mail and Hotmail.

The report from the semiofficial Mehr agency said that authorities in the national telecommunications company declined to comment on the outage that began on Thursday, saying that it had no connection to them.

Iran has occasionally restricted the internet since the turmoil that followed the 2009 elections and blocked websites including Facebook, Twitter, Voice of America and the BBC Farsi service.
