ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Rehman Malik said the fact that no terrorism related incidents occurred in the country on Eidul Azha, was a success on the part of the government, DawnNews reported.

Speaking to the media, he apologised for the inconvenience to the general public due to the closure of mobile phone services.

The interior minister also  said that the closure of mobile services today helped prevent terrorists from carrying out attacks.

During his talk to the media, Malik also said that if Youtube barred access on its website to anti-Islamic material, then there is a possibility of the site being reopened.
