China Orders Google to Suspend Some Search Services

From Wall Street Journal:

Chinese regulators have ordered Google Inc. to suspend search services for foreign Web sites via its Chinese Web site, the official Xinhua News Agency reported Friday, a day after the company was warned over the pornographic content available through its search engine.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the order applies to all foreign Web sites or just certain sites.

Google was also ordered to suspend searches for certain key words when summoned by unspecified regulators on Thursday afternoon, the report said.
