Report: Iran unblocks Facebook

Press TV - Iran has restored access to social networking website Facebook, about three days after it was blocked, ILNA news agency has reported. "Facebook was unblocked a few minutes ago," ILNA said.

As Iran gears up for the June 12 elections, Facebook has become increasingly popular among Iranian voters who discuss their views and engage in heated presidential debates on the social website.

Presidential hopeful Mehdi Karroubi criticized the government for the filtering of the website. However, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad denied calling for a ban on Facebook.

Internet providers also say the blocking of websites is decided by the judiciary and a special committee there in charge of fighting moral abuse in internet.
