TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- An Iranian news agency reports that more
than 30 million people in the country have lost access to foreign
email services such as Gmail, Yahoo mail and Hotmail.

The Saturday report by the semiofficial Mehr agency says that
the authorities in the national telecommunications company declined
to comment on the outage that began 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.

    It's not true. It is the international internet services that have cut down Iranian people's acess to internet and email.
