YouTube and esnips has been blocked by Bangladesh

The world famous video-sharing website YouTube has been blocked by Bangladesh after a recording of a meeting between the PM and army officers was posted. 

The meeting held two days after a mutiny by border guards in Dhaka that left more than 70 people dead.
The recordings cover about 40 minutes of a three-hour meeting and reveal how angry many in the military were at the government's handling of the crisis.

The chairman of the Bangladesh Telecommunications Regulatory Commission, Zia Ahmed, said the decision to block access to YouTube, and another website, esnips, was taken because the audio recordings they hosted threatened to worsen the current situation.
"The government can take any decision to stop any activity that threatens national unity and integrity," he said.

The government has not said when the sites will be unblocked.
