Syrian authorities have banned the use of the iPhone in an attempt to prevent activists from documenting government violence, reports Elnashra.

According to TNW, activists in the country are being served with notices from the Customs Department of the Syrian Finance Ministry that reads:

"The authorities warn anyone against using the iphone in Syria."

The 2011 Syrian uprising is an ongoing internal conflict occurring in Syria. Protests started on 26 January 2011, and escalated into an uprising by 15 March 2011. The uprising, which the United Nations considers a civil war, is influenced by concurrent protests in the region, and has been described as "unprecedented." The demands of protesters include for President Bashar al-Assad to step down; for the ruling Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party to allow other political parties; for equal rights for Kurdish people; and for broad political freedoms, such as freedom of press, speech and assembly.
