Google withdraw from China

Google.cn will be closed!!!
Google decided on Tuesday to shut down google.cn and the China users will be directed to google.com.hk (Hong Kong). Google wanted to remove the censorship of its website and to stop the filtering of its searching service, actions which disturbed the chinese authorities. Following the failure of the negociation, Google.cn is supposed to become inactive as from today but some users confirmed that the serch engine was still running. Chinese state-run media reacted quickly blaming google of "violating its written promises when entering the Chinese market by stopping the search censorship." Google made the closing announcement at 3.03 AM local time (3.03 PM ET). It is known that China blocked previously access also to popular websites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.
