Facebook Blocks Access to Anti-Muhammad Pages in Turkey

To avoid being banned throughout Turkey, Facebook has blocked Turkish users’ access to a number of pages containing content that the authorities had deemed insulting to the Prophet Muhammad, according to a company employee with direct knowledge of the matter and a report by the state broadcaster TRT. The company acted to comply with an order from a Turkish court, the employee said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the company had not authorized the employee to speak publicly.
