Youtube restricts access to controversial Mohammed film
PALO ALTO, CALIF: Youtube Inc has reportedly restricted access to a controversial film responsible for sparking outrage across the Muslim community, resulting the death of numerous U.S diplomatic officials as a result.
The video sharing company issued a statement to CNN’s Newswire citing that although the film will remain view-able in the United States and such it will not be watchable in Egypt nor Libya temporarily.
“We work hard to create a community everyone can enjoy and which also enables people to express different opinions,” YouTube said by e-mail. “This can be a challenge because what’s OK in one country can be offensive elsewhere.
“This video — which is widely available on the Web — is clearly within our guidelines and so will stay on YouTube. However, given the very difficult situation in Libya and Egypt we have temporarily restricted access in both countries.
“Our hearts are with the families of the people murdered in yesterday’s attack in Libya.”
