Libya Telecom and Technology (LTT) has blocked nearly a million pornographic websites from being viewed in Libya.
According to a report from Libya Herald, the move follows a directive from the government criminalising the distribution and display to the general public of material deemed offensive.
Responding to the government’s insistence that its directive must not affect scientific or artistic websites, LTT says that its action has not had an impact on “social network”.
It has set up a dedicated email address – firstname.lastname@example.org – to report any website that has been wrongly categorised as pornographic.
