The Turkish government has blocked video-sharing site YouTube, following a video post which appeared to show security officials discussing military action in Syria.
Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan described the recording, which was posted anonymously to YouTube, as "villainous" on Thursday, according to Reuters.
The country's telecommunications authority took steps to block access to YouTube ahead of key local elections on Sunday. The ban came just a week after the government banned social networking site Twitter.
"We're seeing reports that some users are not able to access YouTube in Turkey," a Google spokeswoman said, via email. "There is no technical issue on our side and we're looking into the situation."
