Director-general of the BBC's Persian service, Mark Thompson, said the BBC had suffered a "sophisticated cyber attack", most likely perpetrated by the Iranian government.

The attacks included attempts to jam satellite feeds of the British Broadcasting Corporation services into Iran and an automated phone jamming attack that swampped lines at its London office.

Thompson stopped short of explicitly accusing Iran of being behind the sudden attack, but described the coincidence as “self evidently suspicious”. Naturally, there was no immediate comment from Iranian authorities.
