Indonesia only blocks access to Wilders' Fitna
Isnawan, vice chairman of the Indonesian Internet Providers Association, said service providers would only block access to pages carrying the film by Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch anti-immigration Freedom Party, which alternates images of attacks with quotations from the Koran.

The move followed protests by web users who said they were disadvantaged by the banning of several sites including YouTube, Multiply and My Space.

"We don't need to block the sites but only links that broadcast the film. If the film is moved to another site, we will keep on chasing and block it," Isnawan said.

The Web sites were fully blocked on Monday and Tuesday.
