RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Saudi Arabia's state-owned press agency reports that King Abdullah has ordered the blocking of all websites with access to an anti-Islam film that has sparked protests across the Muslim world.
An Associated Press reporter in Saudi Arabia reported that the online video sharing site YouTube was inaccessible Tuesday evening.
This comes after the Saudi Press Agency reported the kingdom sent a request to Google Inc., YouTube's owner, to "veil" all links containing the video, which was produced in the United States and which ridicules the Prophet Muhammad.
Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Google has blocked access to the video in Libya and Egypt following violence there, and in Indonesia and India because it says the video broke laws in those countries.
