Thanks to a reader who sent me a screenshot this morning, I’ve learned that Afghan mobile phone/internet provider Etisalat blocked Augen geradeaus! – especially yesterday’s story on the abducted military observers in Ukraine. The reason – Etisalat calls it category – given is profanity. Whatever that means in this context. Of course reports on abduction and war can be considered profane anyway…
If other readers in Afghanistan could please check whether this blog is banned by other providers (Roshan?) as well – that would be interesting.
Update: seems the website is no longer blocked by Etisalat:
@thomas_wiegold bei mir klappt's, mit etisalat
