Comic's Web Site Is Pulled

The British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and Kazakhstan are at it again. In their latest skirmish, Reuters reported, Kazakhstan has pulled the plug on the Web site of Borat Sagdiyev, the boorish, sexist, racist Kazakh television reporter who is Mr. Cohen's alter ego. Last month, the foreign ministry threatened "legal action" against Mr. Cohen, known for his portrayal of Borat on "Da Ali G. Show." Mr. Cohen, who is Jewish, used the Web site, www.borat.kz, to respond. Yesterday, the government-appointed organization that regulates Web sites ending in the .kz domain name for Kazakhstan confirmed that Mr. Cohen's site had been suspended. Nurlan Isin, president of the Association of Kazakh IT Companies, said: "We've done this so he can't badmouth Kazakhstan under the .kz domain name. He can go and do whatever he wants at other domains."
