KHARTOUM - Sudan has ordered the blocking of access to the YouTube website to prevent people watching a film that insults Prophet Mohammad, a senior government official said on Wednesday.

YouTube owner Google Inc. has already blocked access to the film in Egypt, Libya, India and Indonesia after deadly protests in several countries, but it has rejected a request by the White House to pull it from the site altogether.

The film "Innocence of Muslims", clips of which were posted on the Internet, portrays the Prophet Mohammad as a womanizer and has provoked an outcry among Muslims and triggered violent attacks on embassies across North Africa and the Middle East.
