DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- Iran says that several state-linked news websites have been seized by the U.S. government under unclear circumstances.

The Iranian state-linked websites that appear to have been abruptly taken offline by American authorities include the state television English-language arm Press TV.

Others include the Yemeni Houthi rebels' Al-Masirah satellite news channel
