Google services are being disrupted in China ahead of this week’s 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square crackdown in Beijing, Reuters reported Monday, citing censorship watchdog GreatFire.org.
GreatFire said in a blog post said that many users in China had not been able to use Google Inc.’s main search engine and Gmail, among many other services, for four days.
“It is not clear that the block is a temporary measure around the anniversary or a permanent block,” Reuters quoted the organization as saying.
A Google spokesman said the company had made extensive checks and “there’s nothing wrong on our end.”
