Soap Cancellation Not Threat Related — Jordan TV
(JT) — Jordan TV denied claims yesterday that the cancellation of the drama series “The Road to Kabul” came after an Islamist threat, saying the decision was taken upon request from the producer. “After we had received eight episodes, the producer, Qatar TV, announced their reservations concerning broadcasting the series,” Abdul Halim Arabiyat, director of television, told The Jordan Times.
“The decision to air the series is the right of the producer and we have no choice but to abide by their decision,” he added.
Jordan TV was scheduled to begin showing the series at the start of Ramadan, but on Thursday — the day the threats were made — officials said the programme might be postponed due to “technical difficulties.”

I hate how ambiguous news is. I just never know who to believe.
