KABUL - Afghan authorities have ordered the YouTube website be shutdown "indefinitely" to stop Afghans watching a US-made film they say insults the Prophet Mohammad, government sources told Reuters on Thursday.

The shutdown will begin some time today, they said, adding it was ordered to prevent outbreaks of the violence seen in Libya, Egypt and elsewhere.
