Turkey: Blogger.com blocked?

Our friends at Global Voices Advocacy have reported that Blogger.com has been added to the list of sites filtered in Turkey. This latest news of filtering comes on the heels of news that Wordpress.com, Richard Dawkins' web site and Google Groups have all been blocked due to the legal actions of Turkish creationist Adnan Oktar.

Turkish Internet users have been greeted by the following message when trying to access Blogger:

“Access to this website has been suspended in accordance with decision no. 2008/2761 of the TR Diyarbakir First Criminal Court of Peace.”

For more information on filtering in Turkey, check out OpenNet's Turkey page. The OpenNet Initiative's first country profile on Turkey will be published in the coming months.
