Is Google News (English Version) Being Blocked in China?

Interfax is reporting that the English version of Google’s news service has been inaccessible in China for more than a week.

Zhang Junwei, a Google Media official stationed in Beijing, acknowledged that the company’s English News channel was inaccessible when contacted by Interfax, but could not provide further comment.

The Google English News channel, which monitors more than 4,500 online news outlets, has become a popular resource for Chinese netizens searching for information from around the world. As Interfax previously reported, the Chinese government blocked Google’s News channel in September of 2002.
