The networks of the Broadcasting Board of Governors are providing comprehensive Persian, Arabic and English language coverage on the soaring tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia following the Saudi execution earlier this month of a prominent Shi’ite cleric, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, who was critical of the Saudi kingdom. For many in Iran, Saudi Arabia and throughout the Middle East, these networks are the only source of accurate and unbiased information on the developments.
