Reuters said both its English and Chinese websites were inaccessible in China today, and it appears to be the government that’s made them unavailable.
Communist China blocks a large number of foreign websites – the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and Bloomberg are all banned.
Reuters asked the government internet watchdog what was going on but the watchdog doesn’t appear to be listening, yet.
The news service said in a statement that it is committed to fair and accurate journalism across world. “We recognise the great importance of news about China to all our customers, and we hope that our sites will be restored in China too,” Reuters said in a statement.
The company’s financial and data services to Chinese clients haven’t been tampered with.
