Turkey Adds Video-Sharing Site Vimeo to List of Blocked Websites

Turkey has blocked the video- sharing site Vimeo.com, adding it to a list of banned websites.

Visitors to the site from Turkey are now greeted with a message saying the site was blocked as a “protective measure” by order of the chief prosecutor in Ankara on Sept. 28.

Turkey has banned Google Inc.’s Youtube, the world’s largest video sharing site, for more than three years, one of more than 10,000 sites barred by the government for hosting allegedly offensive material, according to ntvmsnbc.com.
