YouTube blocked in Pakistan and Bangladesh over controversial video

John Ribeiro | Sept. 19, 2012
Pakistan and Bangladesh have ordered a block on YouTube in their countries, in protest against Google's reluctance to block a controversial movie trailer that mocks the Prophet Muhammad on the video-sharing site.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said last week that the U.S. government did not have anything to do with the video, but that the U.S. does not and cannot stop individual citizens from expressing their views.

The video was filmed in the U.S. by a person, or people, whose identity has yet to be established, according to some reports.

Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the block of YouTube in Pakistan and Bangladesh.
