The Turkish government blocked access to YouTube on Thursday, a week after it banned Twitter and just hours after alleged recordings of Turkish government security meetings on Syria were uploaded to YouTube, according to BuzzFeed.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has made repeated threats to block YouTube and Facebook after he banned Twitter on March 20. “You cannot bug lines under any law, but they went too far, and we will get into their cave to catch them,” Erdogan told an election rally in the western province of Denizli on March 1, referring to alleged leaked recordings of Turkish government officials’ phone calls.
