UAE blocks YouTube video postings

July 27, 2006

UAE state monopoly internet provider Etisalat has blocked YouTube, the world's leading online video site. The block comes despite the fact that YouTube bans all adult content and filters any videos that users flag as questionable. The UAE is increasingly blocking general entertainment websites under its remit of removing sites "inconsistent with the religious, cultural, political and moral values of the United Arab Emirates."
