Government lifts YouTube ban

ISLAMABAD (February 27 2008): Pakistan said it had lifted a ban on YouTube on Tuesday after the website removed cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), adding that an earlier world-wide outage sparked by its actions was unintentional.

Telecommunications officials told AFP that the popular website was up and running again in the conservative Muslim nation after YouTube removed “highly profane and sacrilegious footage” that was offensive to Islam.

“We have issued instructions to all Internet service providers that YouTube should be unblocked,” PTA spokesman told AFP.
