Malaysia asks Google to block 'anti-Islam video'
Malaysian authorities want the clip removed from YouTube because of the "explosive commotions and repercussions at hand".
Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia has asked Google to block access to the 'anti-Islam video' clip blamed for sparking mob attacks against US embassies and consulates across the Middle East.
Information Minister Rais Yatim says Malaysian authorities want the clip removed from YouTube because of the "explosive commotions and repercussions at hand".
Google owns YouTube, which has already blocked the clip in Libya and Egypt, citing "the very sensitive situations" there. It also blocked it in India and Indonesia after their governments told YouTube the video broke their laws.
The clip is from the obscure film 'Innocence of Muslims', which was produced in the US and denigrates Islam and the Prophet Mohammad. It has been blamed for playing a role in violence in Libya, where the US ambassador and three other Americans were killed.
