Turkish court rules to end YouTube ban

Turkey's Constitutional Court ruled on Thursday that a block on access to video-sharing website YouTube, imposed by Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's government two months ago, was a violation of rights, local media reported.

Blocks on access to YouTube were imposed after an audio recording of a top secret security meeting between Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Intelligence Chief Hakan Fidan and the army's second-in-command was leaked on to the internet.

Twitter was also temporarily banned after it refused to comply to the requests of the Turkish authorities to remove profiles of individuals who had had their identities hijacked.

The block on access to Twitter was lifted in April.
