Ban on Palestinian websites challenged in West Bank

About 50 Palestinian websites banned, as critics fear clampdown on press freedom.

    The Palestinian Authority has blocked access to dozens of news websites accused of violating a cybercrimes law in the occupied West Bank. They were allegedly critical of President Mahmoud Abbas and his leadership.

    But the constitutional court is considering whether to lift that ban.

    Al Jazeera's Nida Ibrahim reports from Ramallah, in the occupied West Bank.
