ARA News was last seen on 2 September why is it offline?

PostAuthor: Anthea » Sat Sep 02, 2017 11:11 pm

When I tried to visit ARA News all I saw was a black screen with the following words written in bright yellow in the centre of the screen :shock:

This site is currently not available.

Please try again later.


Does anyone know what is happening?

Re: ARA News still offline has it been closed down ???

ARA News has been offline for at least 12 hours to my knowledge - could be a lot longer

But even having a news site offline for 12 hours is unusual

Perhaps it is only having problems in the UK

Are people in other countries still able to see ARA News ???

Still no ARA News :shock:

It appears to be based in Holland so should be safe

It runs a Linux operating system so should be secure

Curious VERY curious :-?

Possibly the main web site but that should not effected the twitter account :-\

It was a politically active site in as much as their reporters were actually on the ground with the fighters in Iraq and Syria - unlike most reporters who are mostly in front of screens or get out of helicopters in safe areas for a 2 minute report, then vanish back to safety

ARA tended to publish the TRUTH
