RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — YouTube said Tuesday that it was stopping users in Saudi Arabia from viewing an anti-Islam video that has sparked protests across the Muslim world, after the kingdom's press agency reported that the ruler had banned all access to the film and the site appeared to be blocked there.

The online video sharing site said that it was preventing "Innocence of Muslims" from being seen on its site in Saudi Arabia after being notified by the government there that the clip is breaking the country's laws.
