Google rejects White House request to remove 'anti-Islam' film from YouTube.

Washington, Sept 15 ( ANI ): Internet search giant Google has refused to remove the anti-Islamic movie from YouTube, which has sparked violent demonstrations across the Middle East and North Africa.

The firm's decision came after the White House requested for the trailer for 'Innocence of Muslims' to be reviewed under the company's policies.

The company determined that the video was within guidelines, Fox News reports.

"However, we've restricted access to it in countries where it is illegal such as India and Indoesia, as well as in Libya and Egypt given the very sensitive situation sin these two countries," the report quoted a Google spokeswoman, as saying.

The trailer for 'Innocence of Muslims' has been used as a rallying cry by those attacking U.S. embassies and consulates around the world.

Several top lawmakers, however, think that the film was used as a cover to execute a pre-planned attack on American officials, in the case of the deadly attack on the consulate in Libya. ( ANI )
