Turkey moves to block YouTube


ISTANBUL (AP) - State-run news Turkish says authorities are moving to block access to YouTube in Turkey following a similar move against Twitter.

The ban comes after an alleged audio recording of a meeting between the Turkey's foreign minister, intelligence chief and top military and foreign ministry officials was leaked on YouTube. The four are allegedly heard discussing a military intervention in Syria.

The earlier attempted crackdown on Twitter came after links to other wiretapped recordings suggesting corruption were spread on the microblogging site, causing Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government major embarrassment before local elections on March 30.
