Turkey blocks YouTube again

PanARMENIAN.Net - Turkey has blocked access to YouTube again, just days after ending a two-and-a-half-year ban, but this time over a sex scandal video, rather than videos insulting to the nation's founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the WSJ reports.

A Turkish court decided to block access to the popular website, the reason being the refusal to remove hosting private video showcasing former head of the Turkey’s opposition Republican People's Party Deniz Baykal and a representative of his party in a hotel room.

Turkey’s laws on regulation of the Internet have long been criticized by human rights organizations. In June 2010 the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) reported that Turkey is blocking access to five thousand sites.
