University internet lab shut down

An internet lab providing internet connectivity to students has been shut down in University of Orumieh, a provincial university in Iran.

University officials stated that despite internet's scientific benefits, they were forced to shut down the lab which held more than 30 computers due to students' unscientific use and repeated browsing of "indecent" websites. "The lab will remain closed until students familiarize themselves with the philosophy of internet", the official added.
