French government orders website block

“The French authorities have used new powers to block five websites, which they claim condone terrorism, without a court order. The new powers apply to sites suspected of commissioning or advocating terrorism or distributing indecent images of children. The rules were approved along with other counter-terrorism measures by the French parliament last year. It is the first time they have been put to use to block websites without going through a court process.”
