BBC World Service press release, 15 Apr 2010: "BBC World Service is to reinstate its FM programming on the Sri Lankan national broadcaster SLBC from Thursday 15 April. This will be the first BBC programming on the SLBC FM network for 14 months. The BBC suspended its programmes in the English, Sinhala and Tamil languages on 10 February 2009, following deliberate interference in its broadcasts. During the suspension, the BBC's services in all three languages remained available in Sri Lanka via short wave – on bbc.com/news, bbcsinhala.com and bbctamil.com via the internet – and news bulletins in English via the Sri Lankan commercial broadcaster MBC."
