Spain has ordered a satellite TV company to stop broadcasting a television station run by Hizbollah’s anti-Israel guerrillas to Latin America, the Industry Ministry said yesterday. The decision comes after France banned the channel, al-Manar, from broadcasting there in a move widely condemned in Lebanon, Hizbollah’s home country. The United States labelled the station a terrorist organisation in December and European Union regulators said in March they would remove the channel from European satellites. The Spanish government told state-controlled satellite company Hispasat to cancel a contract signed last year with France Telecom unit Globecast to transmit the station to Latin America. The contract did not include broadcasting in Spain, a ministry spokesman said.
