TechCrunch: Snap blocks Al Jazeera in Saudi Arabia to “comply with local laws”

TechCrunch: Snap blocks Al Jazeera in Saudi Arabia to “comply with local laws”. “Snap has bowed to pressure from the government of Saudi Arabia to censor a news channel operated by the Qatar-based news broadcaster, Al Jazeera, from the Snapchat Discover section of its app. The development was reported earlier by the WSJ. Al Jazeera launched a Snap Discover channel in English in December 2015 — but only launched its Arabia news channel in May this year.”
