MOSCOW, March 5 (UPI) -- A Russian court ordered a Wikipedia article on "Mein Kampf" blocked because of a link to the text of Adolf Hitler's autobiography, Wikipedia said.

Rostelcom was ordered to block access to a total of 17 websites with alleged "extremist" content, the state-backed news agency RIA Novosti reported. A Khabarovsk Central Court representative said that must be done by March 10.
