Pakistan lifted a ban on the YouTube video-sharing Web site on Tuesday saying that the video that was offensive to Islam had been removed.

YouTube was unblocked after the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority ordered Internet providers to unblock the site.

YouTube was blocked from local access in Pakistan, on Friday, after Pakistan officials said a trailer of a Dutch film portraying the Koran as a fascist book was offending Islam.

The ban affected worldwide access to YouTube for a few hours on Sunday due to blockage of the site that was transmitted globally by mistake.

The Pakistan upper house of parliament adopted a unanimous resolution on Tuesday condemning the republication of cartoons of Prophet Muhammad in the Danish media, calling the act blasphemous.

The cartoon was first published in 2005 and its reprint this month sparked protest in Muslim countries including Pakistan.
