China: Government Blocks Access to Youtube

The Chinese government has blocked YouTube, the
video-sharing Web site run by Google. Beijing
originally blocked YouTube in late March, then
lifted the block for a brief period around March
27. At that time, residents of Beijing could use
the site. But in recent weeks, the site has been
inaccessible without going through proxy servers,
according to people in several Chinese cities.
The exact reason for the block remains unclear.
The original block was imposed shortly after a
video was uploaded to the site by Tibetans in
exile that purported to show atrocities committed
by Chinese security forces during and after rioting in Tibet in March 2008.
