The Palestinian Authority Sunday defended its decision to block websites that are critical of PA President Mahmoud Abbas and denied charges that it was violating freedom of expression in the West Bank.

PA Attorney-General Ahmed al-Mughni claimed that some of the blocked websites had published instructions how to manufacture explosives.

"Some of the websites were blocked for training Palestinians how to manufacture bombs and use them," al-Mughni said without providing evidence.
