Iran ends its ban on CNN

News net to continue operation

Iran has lifted a ban on CNN operating in the country, only a day after barring the U.S. news net for mistranslating a speech by the country’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Iranian state TV announced the ban had been lifted after CNN apologized for the error, in which the hardline president’s assertion that Iran had a right to use nuclear energy was mistranslated as nuclear “weapons.”

The CNN Group had issued a statement expressing its “regrets to the Iranian government and the Iranian ambassador to the United Nations.”
