Thailand blocks WikiLeaks on 'security grounds'

Thai authorities have used emergency powers to block the WikiLeaks website on security grounds, claiming it could lead to further unrest, the Telegraph reports today.
It quotes a spokesman from the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology stating: “Access to this website has been temporarily suspended under the 2005 emergency decree.” The ICT said it has blocked 1,340 websites on security grounds since emergency rule began in April.
