Pakistani authorities have restored access to the social media website Twitter, hours after blocking it for messages deemed "offensive to Islam".

No clear reason was given for the ban, which came into force shortly after Interior Minister Rehman Malik said there were no plans to block Twitter.

Correspondents say it appeared to stem from tweets about a 2010 competition on Facebook to submit images of the Prophet Muhammad.

Islam forbids images of the prophet.
