ANKARA, TURKEY (AP) - Turkey’s government has defended a new regulation that will filter the Internet and restrict access to websites that show pornography, bomb-making and violent content.

Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc said Tuesday that among websites the government wants restricted are also those “explaining how to kill your wife.”

Critics say the new regulation, set to come into effect in August, amounts to more censorship in an already heavy-handed effort to control information.
