The government has banned movement by press vehicles with equipment to broadcast live.

The measure, which will prevent live coverage of events particularly inside Baghdad, has been harshly criticized by Iraqi journalists.

The order to ban such vehicles from driving inside Baghdad comes following devastating car bombings which killed and maimed hundreds of people.
