The Pakistani government says it has blocked access to YouTube because of growing "sacrilegious" content on the video-sharing website.
Today's move comes a day after the government blocked Facebook because of a page on the social networking site that encourages users to post images of Islam's Prophet Muhammad -- which are considered blasphemous under Islam.
The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority says in a statement that the government took action after it failed to convince the two websites to remove "derogatory material."
Access to the online encyclopedia site Wikipedia and the photo sharing site Flickr were also restricted today.
