Pakistani officials consider options for filtering YouTube

http://j.mp/RRp2fS  (Washington Post)

   "For two months, Pakistanis have been unable to call up YouTube to
    watch an anti-Islam video that sparked deadly riots here and elsewhere
    in the Muslim world. But neither have they been able to use the
    service to view the U.S. presidential debates, to catch the "Gangnam
    Style" craze or even to laugh at silly kitties in the Friskies
    Internet Cat Video Awards.  Now, the netizens of Pakistan are telling
    the government that they want their YouTube back, prompting a
    re-evaluation of the ban."
