Google Was Temporarily Blocked in China

Yesterday, Sunday, for over an hour and could not be reached in China. According to Sina, the site was inaccessible from 17:23 to 18:45. Google in a statement quoted by Sina said they researched the cause of this but could not find anything wrong on their end, so the conclusion is that this was a block part of the so-called Great Firewall of China. Whether or not it was an accidental block is anyone’s guess... it could be accidental, and it could also be that it was a proverbial slap on the hand.
