Cairo, Jan 30: After witnessing the six-day long protest all around the nation, President of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak showed its wrath on the television channel Al Jazeera by shutting down its service in Egypt from Sunday, Jan 30.

Mubarak government ordered to withdraw the channel's license to broadcast from the country, and the government also issued order to shut down its bureau office in Cairo.

Following the protest, government has already banned several sites in Internet. To mar the communication system in the country, the government also blocked mobile servers. Sources reported that after blocking social networking site Twitter, now the government is behind Facebook.
