2012-09-13 13:17

The company Google, the owner of the video hosting YouTube, will block in Egypt and Libya the opportunity to watch a film about the Prophet Muhammad that caused the anger of the Muslims, the Interfax reported.


"This video is not contrary to our policy and will remain on YouTube. However, due to the difficult situation in Libya and Egypt we temporarily lock the access to this video in these countries", said in a communique issued by the company.

Google justified this decision by saying that the company protects the freedom of speech and expression.

The film "The innocence of Muslims" ​​in which the Muslim prophet Muhammad presented in a very unfavorable light caused a strong reaction in Egypt and Libya. On Tuesday, after the fragments of the film appeared on the Internet, a demonstration was held outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, the RIA Novosti reported.

Participants of the rally surrounded the American consulate, chanting anti-American slogans, and burned down the U.S. flag. Later, the U.S. diplomatic missions were also attacked in Libya and Tunisia. In Benghazi, the consulate was fired; as a result of firing the U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other diplomats were killed.
