Egypt prosecutor orders ban on internet pornography

CAIRO, EGYPT: Egypt's state prosecutor ordered a ban on internet pornography after a previous court order to do so was not implemented.
State prosecutor Abdel Meguid Mahmud "ordered a block on pornography sites," his office said in a statement.

An administrative court issued a similar order in 2009, ruling that Internet pornography "ruins moral values."

But Egypt, now under the rule of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi, does not appear to have banned any websites, unlike several other countries in the region that have tried to restrict access to political or pornography websites.

It was not immediately clear who the prosecutor expects should implement the ban.
