YouTube Banned In Turkey

A YouTube broadcast that showed Greek soldiers marching and singing hateful lyrics such as “We will break off the Turks’ heads and plant a cross in Hagia Sophia,” as part of the commando unit’s routine bi-annual march has caused Turkey to completely block access to YouTube. According to Turkish media, YouTube had become a battleground for a ‘virtual war’ between Greek and Turkish users of the site, with both groups posting insulting videos.

Accessing the video-sharing site from the country results in the following text (translated from Turkish):

Access to site has been suspended in accordance with decision no: 2007/ 384 dated 06.03.2007 of Istanbul First Criminal Peace Court.

While the videos were removed from YouTube, the site still remains blocked.
