'Hotbed of Slander': Tajikistan's bizarre explanation for blocking Facebook

http://j.mp/WXBYG6  (Washington Post)

    Tajikistan's government has ordered all Internet Service Providers and
    mobile carriers in the country to block access to Facebook, cutting
    off the country's 41,000 users off from the world's largest social
    network.  The country's telecom chief, Beg Zuhurov, justified the move
    by saying "hundreds of citizens" had called him to ask that Facebook
    be shut down because it was a "hotbed of slander."
