YouTube blocks anti-Islam video in India: Google
NEW DELHI (AFP) - Video-sharing website YouTube has blocked access in India to an anti-Islam film that surfaced in the United States (US) and has since sparked deadly protests in the Muslim world, Google said on Friday.
US-based search engine Google, which owns YouTube, did not say whether it acted on its own or was asked to remove the content by the Indian government.
"We do, at times, block content in response to a court order or other valid legal process. We have blocked access to the YouTube page in the Indian domain," a Google executive, who asked not to be named, told AFP.
YouTube had earlier this week offered to "temporarily" restrict access to the film in Libya and Egypt, the hotbed of protests, because of the "very difficult situation" in both the countries.
