Kazakhstan shuts down opposition web sites – New Zealand’s source for World News on Stuff.co.nz

Abai Sakenov, administrator of geo.kz, said: “I was notified yesterday of the suspension of the domain. I only found out about it last night.”

The Internet is used mainly by young Kazakhs who are more likely to sympathise with the opposition. Less than a quarter of Kazakhstan’s 15 million people regularly browse the Internet, mainly in the commercial capital Almaty. [/quote]

Yes the same could happen here.
