(Newser) – People throughout Iran sat down this week to watch HBO's new documentary about slain protester Neda Agha-Soltan—and lo and behold, satellites and electricity mysteriously went on the fritz. The Voice of America's Persian News Network aired the film Wednesday and got reports of jammed signals soon after it started, reports the Guardian. HBO has put the film on YouTube ahead of this month's anniversary of the shooting and will begin airing For Neda on US television this month.
