Iran’s state TV has accused the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) for hacking into the official website of the channel and changing the results of a poll about Iran’s nuclear programme.
According to the BBC’s Farsi (Persian) language channel report, ”the poll showed 63% of those who took part favoured halting uranium enrichment in exchange for an end to Western economic sanctions”.
Which was today’s into 24%, and the rest favored retaliation against the West with measures like closing the strategic Strait of Hormuz, a key to exporting oil from the Gulf.
The West suspects Iran may be aiming to produce nuclear weapons. Iran insists its nuclear programme is for peaceful purposes like energy production.
There was no immediate comment from the BBC.
The poll was taken off Iran TV’s website yesterday.
