The movie many refer to as the worst ever attempted in the history of filmmaking is still making news.
U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed in that attack, which is now believed to have been an orchestrated effort by al-Qaida.
The Washington Post reported that an Egyptian court ordered “a one-month ban on YouTube on Saturday, after it said the video-sharing Web site had failed to remove an American-made anti-Islam video.”
The ruling is in response to a lawsuit filed by an Egyptian lawyer, and the ban may also apply to other websites that circulated the video, such as Facebook and Twitter.
“This is a temporary punishment, you could say, for these websites for participating in this,” Judge Hassouna Tawfiq said.
“In November, an Egyptian court imposed death sentences on seven Egyptian Coptic Christians, including the filmmaker, along with Florida-based pastor Terry Jones, in connection with the film,” according to The Washington Post.
