The Palestinian prosecutor general has ordered Palestine Television to halt the broadcast of a comedy show after receiving complaints about its skewering of everyone from doctors to police officials, Reuters has reported. The ban of the Watan ala Watar (Nation hanging by a Thread), was based on a complaint lodged by the chief of the Palestinian police, the head of an anti-corruption authority and the president of the doctors' union.
