Pakistan gets rid of YouTube ban

Islamabad – Pakistan has lifted a ban on YouTube after the video-sharing website removed content that was offensive to Islam, a telecommunications official said Tuesday.

Authorities in the conservative Muslim country ordered the blocking of the website at the weekend, but the move prompted worldwide problems with access for a few hours.

“We have issued instructions to all Internet service providers that YouTube should be unblocked as the specific content has been removed by the website,” Pakistan Telecommunications Authority spokesman Khurram Mehran told AFP.
