Pakistan has lifted its ban on YouTube. The ban was put in place because "blasphemous" videos were available on the site. Some users are skeptical about the government's official explanation for the ban, and believe YouTube was banned instead because it hosted videos that proved election fraud occurred in recent parliamentary elections in Pakistan. A nasty side effect of the ban: YouTube was knocked offline, worldwide, for two hours on Sunday. Pakistan Telecom, the Internet service provider which rendered YouTube unavailable, says that was an accident. [AFP]
