    Turkey has moved to block access to YouTube, a day after a court ordered the suspension of a ban on Twitter, which PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan backed.



    The telecoms authority (TIB) said it had taken an "administrative measure" against the site but another report suggests that talks are under way.



    Some users found access blocked while others could still use the site.



    Earlier, what appeared to be a leaked audio recording of Turkish officials discussing Syria appeared on YouTube.It relates to a discussion of possible military operations in Syria, which was apparently attended by Turkey's intelligence chief, its foreign minister and the deputy head of the armed forces.



    Reuters news agency, which examined the recording, said it could not verify its authenticity but it was potentially the most damaging purported leak so far as it appeared to have originated from the bugging of a highly confidential and sensitive conversation.



    Mr Erdogan, who faces important local elections on Sunday, accuses social media of spreading misinformation and suggested earlier that bans could be applied to both YouTube and Facebook..
