Kazakhstan bans anti-Islam film
Astana: A Kazakh court on Thursday ruled that the anti-Islam US film "Innocence of Muslims" was extremist and issued a nationwide ban on its distribution, Judge Kuanysh Zhaksybergenov said.
The Kazakh prosecutor`s office initiated proceedings Sep 21, calling for a ban on the film`s import, duplication and distribution in Kazakhstan on religious hatred and extremism grounds.
Mobile network operators have agreed to carry out the court`s instructions.
The 14-minute video ignited violent protests in Benghazi, Libya, and led to the death of US ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans Sep 11. Similar protests were held across the Arab world.
