Pakistan lifts the ban on YouTube

Pakistan's telecoms regulator has lifted the restrictions it imposed on video-sharing website YouTube.
The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority has told internet service providers (ISPs) to restore access to the site, according to a spokeswoman.
Google, the owner of YouTube, confirmed service had been restored in Pakistan.
The attempt to block the site, reportedly because of a "blasphemous" video clip, caused a near global blackout of the site on Sunday.
A spokesman for YouTube told the BBC News website: "We are pleased to confirm that YouTube is again accessible in Pakistan."
