The National Telecommunication Regulatory Authority filed an appeal on a court ruling that obliges it to block the video-sharing website "YouTube" for 30 days in Egypt for broadcasting a film deprecating Prophet Muhammad of Islam.
The appeal was filed because the ruling was impossible to implement, said NTRA in a statement Thursday 14/02/2013.
Blocking YouTube will affect "Google", it said, adding that Egypt is ranked the second in the Middle East in using the search engine.
The administrative court ordered Saturday the government to block YouTube for 30 days.
The website kept the offensive video "Innocence of Muslims" online despite the outrage it caused among Muslims around the world, the court said.
