Google says China censoring search service


BEIJING: A Google search feature was blocked in China yesterday, the company said as it awaited the Chinese government’s decision on whether to renew its operating licence amid tensions over censorship.

Google said mainland users were unable to use the search giant’s “suggest” feature, which offers possible results as they start to type in a query.
