Saudi media is outraged

As if Iraqi or any non-Saudi papers are allowed to publish in Saudi Arabia:
"London-based pan-Arabian newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat has announced the decision to stop publishing its edition in Iraq, after repeated violations by the Asaaib Ahl al-Haq militia, which they say is “close to Iran and to the former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.”

It added that armed militia were breaching the law, and censoring content by ‘deleting or amending articles and the reports in the newspaper’ that criticized Iranian policy in the region. Asharq Al-Awsat said in the most recent incident, the militant group even changed their first page headline." (thanks Basim)
