Turkish court blocks Twitter, YouTube

A Turkish local court on Monday ordered blockage of Twitter and YouTube  for sharing photos of a hostage taken during an armed attack last week.

The court said the order was necessary because images of a deadly siege were being shared via the social networks.

It would be recalled that two gunmen allegedly from a far-left group took a prosecutor hostage at Istanbul central courthouse and were overpowered and killed by police during a rescue bid.
