Israel's Communications Ministry has announced that mobile phone carriers must begin restricting access to adult content. The ruling was due to, "Complaints that too many children were exposed to erotic material." bq. The ministry said in a statement that it would restrict the transmission of porn through video clips and movies on cell phones that use high-speed third-generation networks.

Adults would still be allowed to access the services by entering a code and only after being identified as an adult, the ministry said.
