Morocco blocks YouTubeWednesday, May 30, 2007 at 4:25 | Posted in censorship, internet, youtube | Leave a comment
Maroc Telecom users are unable to access YouTube since May 25th, the BBC reports. The provider denies censorship and quotes “technical problems”. Must be very specific technical problems as they seem to affect just one web site.
Maroc Telecom is a government controlled ISP. Users of privately owned providers can still access YouTube. Better technology, perhaps?
The censorship is said to be prompted by a few videos critical to Morocco’s actions in Western Sahara. That is a few films out of the millions in YouTube.
