Pakistan Restores Access to Funny Cat, Dog Videos

Pakistan today lifted the ban that inadvertently caused YouTube’s near global blackout Sunday, after the site removed a video the country’s government claimed was offensive to Islam. Pakistan insists it was not responsible for YouTube’s outage and says it was forced to take the issue into its own hands when YouTube failed to respond to the complaint it submitted through the standard channels. Abdullah Riar, Pakistan’s minister for information technology and telecommunications, described the whole incident as “very sad, very unfortunate,” adding “We have nothing against the YouTube site itself.”
