Saudi Arabia bans Facebook temporarily

Similar to Muslim Bangladesh and Pakistan, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has temporarily blocked the biggest social networking site, Facebook, on Saturday due to moral concerns.
A Saudi official who maintained anonymity said that Facebook was banned because it does not conform with the country's conservative values.
An error message shows up when Facebook users try to get access to it.
The kingdom follows strict religious interpretation and religious leaders have strong influence over policy and social mores.
