Turkey to block access to anti-Islam film
ANKARA, Turkey -- A Turkish court issued an order on Wednesday allowing authorities in the country to block Internet access to the anti-Islam movie that has sparked violent protests across the Muslim world, an official said.
Binali Yildirim, the minister in charge of transportation and communications, told state-run TRT television that the injunction allows government telecommunications and information technology authorities to prevent access from Turkey to URL links to the film.
The move came a day after another government minister said Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who heads an Islam-based party, ordered officials to find ways of preventing access to videos of "Innocence of Muslims" movie.
Dozens of people, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, have been killed in violence linked to protests over the film.
"Henceforth, it will not be shown in our country," said Yildirim, calling the film "disgusting."
