Bahrain: Blocking Sites

Bahrain unblocked and then blocked a number of sites, writes Bahraini blogger Mahmood Al Yousif.
“I am told that Batelco has started to block the sites again, but rather than blocking them at the proxy servers (which are in a sad state, it seems) they are blocking them directly at the router, which means it is going to be harder to bypass that block. I’ve checked some of the sites below and found that some indeed appear blocked. So, essentially, no lesson has been learnt unfortunately,” he writes.
