Officials in Tajikistan have refused to comment on the black out of two online news portals.

Access to YouTube and a popular nongovernmental website called Ozodagon was partially blocked ahead of presidential elections in the country.

Six candidates including the incumbent President Emomali Rahmon have been officially registered for the poll.

A source claimed the blockage of the two news portals had been ordered by the State Communications Service.
