(From BBC News)
A court in Moscow has approved a request from the Russian media regulator to block the Telegram messaging app immediately.
The media regulator sought to block the app because the firm had refused to hand over encryption keys used to scramble messages.
Security officials say they need to monitor potential terrorists.
But the company said the way the service was built meant it had no access to customers’ encryption keys.
Telegram had missed a deadline of 4 April to hand over the keys.
