BISHKEK, September 19 (Itar-Tass) — The Kyrgyz authorities decided to block the Internet access to the film Innocence of Muslims in the republic, the press service of the republican Prosecutor General’s Office told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“Over the posting and show of this video film on the You Tube website that sparked up spontaneous protest actions in various Muslim countries and triggered massive disorders, the republican Prosecutor General’s Office has made an inquiry,” the press service reported. “The film Innocence of Muslims contains some signs of propaganda for instigating interreligious strife, which caused the ban for the distribution of this video film in the Kyrgyz segment of the Internet,” the press service said.
