DUBAI: Yemen's internationally recognised government has called for a block on the broadcast of a Houthi television channel from the country.


Information Minister Moammer Al-Eryani said the Houthi-run Al-Masirah television was "generating poisonous sectarianism and inciting violence and hatred", Saba news agency reported.

He added that Arab satellite operator Nilesat - which is based in Cairo - had stopped broadcasting the rebel outlet.

The Houthi rebels condemned the calls.

The Supreme Council for Media Regulation in Egypt told AFP it had not ordered the closure of any channels, but the outlet was not visible on Nilesat on Wednesday evening.
