Thailand blocks access to YouTube

Yesterday, 4th April, 2007, Thailand’s military-appointed government has blocked access to the popular video-sharing site YouTube after its owners, Google Inc, declined to take down a clip ridiculing the country's revered monarch: King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

When they decide to withdraw the clip, we will withdraw the ban,said ICT Minister Sitthichai Pookaiyaudom.
