BAGHDAD, June 13 (KUNA) -- The Iraqi federal government has decided to block a number of websites and social networking sites across the country, said source in Iraqi Ministry of Communications on Friday.
The ministry of communications has been instructed by government to block access to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube as well as a number of pornographic websites, a source told KUNA.
The source did not reveal the motive for blocking these sites at the moment, although some see it as part of government measure to prevent militants of Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) from using media outlets.
ISIL militants have released videos and pictures through websites to promote their actions in central and north of Iraq. (end) ohh.hs
