Bombing knocks Iraqi TV off air

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's domestic state television channel has been off the air and a source at the Information Ministry told Reuters that the disruption was probably caused by bomb damage to the ministry in Baghdad.

The station does not normally broadcast overnight but it failed to come back on the air in the morning after a U.S.-led air raid that damaged the Information Ministry building.

Last week, domestic television briefly went off the air but resumed transmission, apparently after engineering work. The station is used by President Saddam Hussein to address the nation. U.S. officials say Iraqi television facilities also have military functions.

Iraq's international satellite channel, which has also been affected at times by the bombing of Baghdad, was still broadcasting on Monday.
