Pakistan blocks Twitter over Prophet cartoons

Mohammad Yaseen said the website was blocked on Sunday because Twitter refused to remove material related to a competition on Facebook to post images of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.

Many Muslims regard depictions of the prophet, even favourable ones, as blasphemous.¬†Yaseen said Facebook agreed to address Pakistan’s concerns but officials have not been able to get Twitter to do the same.¬†Pakistan blocked Facebook in 2010 because of a similar competition.
