Facebook, YouTube, WhatsApp Banned Again in Sri Lanka After Violence Against Muslims

banned

The Sri Lankan government has once again temporarily banned social media networks, this time after attacks apparently sparked by a Facebook post. It’s the third time authorities have blocked social media in the country since the suicide bombings that killed hundreds on Easter Sunday, and it’s part of a worrisome trend of governments blocking citizens’ internet access. 

Sri Lanka mobile carrier Dialog Axiata tweeted Monday that, per the government’s regulatory commission, “Facebook, WhatsApp, Viber, IMO, Snapchat, Instagram & YouTube would be restricted with immediate effect until further notice.”
