Iran Blocking More Websites, Including CNN, Google

Ever since the disputed victory of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the June elections led to wide-scale protests, Iran's leaders have been cracking down on the tech-savvy opposition movement with the Revolutionary Guard and police blocking millions of foreign and domestic Web sites, including some Google services, CNN and the BBC. Iran's leaders say these measures are necessary to counter efforts by the United States and other Western countries.
