YouTube yanks Islamic cleric’s jihad sermon videos: NY Times
YouTube has yanked videos featuring calls by Yemen-based radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaqi for a holy war, The New York Times reported Wednesday.
The American-born Awlaqi has been cited as a catalyst for terrorist attacks and was charged Tuesday in absentia in Yemen with incitement to kill foreigners under the banner of Al-Qaeda.
The move by Yemeni prosecutors came several days after parcel bombs destined for Chicago were traced to suspected jihadists in Yemen.
Removal of some of Awlaqi’s hundreds of videos at YouTube follows complaints from American and British officials, according the the Times.
