An Egyptian court has ordered Al-Jazeera to stop broadcasting due to its reported illegal operation in the country. The decision comes after months of an escalating government-led campaign against the TV station over its reported sympathy towards ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. Egypt's interim government last week issued a statement saying that the broadcasts of Al-Jazeera are a 'national threat,' accusing the news organization of spreading lies. Al Jazeera was also accused of transmitting via satellite without a valid license. The Cairo offices of Al-Jazeera were raided on the 3 July, the same day Egypt's military deposed upon Morsi.
