Bangladesh has blocked nearly 2,000 pornography and gambling websites in an online crackdown ordered by the country's High Court. "On Monday, 55 more pornographic websites were blocked," said an official of Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission.

A day earlier, he said, 176 gambling sites were blocked, reports Xinhua news agency. According to the official, the commission banned 1,523 pornographic and gambling websites earlier. Following the High Court directive issued in November, the government launched the crackdown on Internet pornography, casino type games and other gambling sites.
