Turkey Blocks YouTube Again Over Sex Scandal Video

Turkey has blocked access to YouTube again, just days after ending a two-and-a-half-year ban, but this time over a sex scandal video, rather than videos insulting to the nation's founder Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, according to a lawyer for the subject of the video.

The lawyer, who represents the leader of the republic's main opposition Republican People's Party, Deniz Baykal—said Wednesday that Turkish authorities had blocked the site as a result of a Tuesday court ruling in the case.
