Telecom regulator challenges a court ordered 30-day ban on YouTube that was triggered by offensive religious content on the site

The proposed ban on YouTube has also been criticized by the U.S. "It's actually not quite clear to us at this moment how and whether that's going to be enforced across Egypt," U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said during a daily briefing on Monday. "But as a general matter, you know that we reject censorship as a response to offensive speech."

Google did not immediately comment.
