Assyrian/Iraqi elections controversy[edit]

On 5, 6 and 7 March 2010, Assyrians in Australia and around the world took part in the Iraqi Parliamentary elections of 2010. The Assyrian news agency played a large role[citation needed] in reporting election results and news to the Australian Assyrian community and around the world. The Assyrian news website also had its first controversial story when the agency news crew was told by police and polling officials to stop filming outside the Fairfield Iraqi elections polling centre.[citation needed] It is believed[by whom?] The Assyrian news along with other Iraq media were exposing the attempted blocking of Assyrian votes at the centre.[citation needed] The footage was still released online on The Assyrian news website and was also circulated to other Assyrian news and forums, sites around the world including YouTube.
