Turkish court quashes ban on YouTube
Turkey's constitutional court has reportedly lifted a two-month ban on video-sharing site YouTube.
The court struck down the ban saying that the block ordered by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was also against the law.
According to the BBC, the block was imposed in late March, soon after recordings alleging official corruption were aired on the site.
Turkey's highest court said that the block violated laws governing freedom of expression and added that it would now inform telecom authorities of its decision and ask them to lift the block.
The decision is seen as a snub to the government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, which has been a sharp critic of social media sites such as Twitter and YouTube, the report said.
