Google shuts China search site

China hits back over decision to stop censoring search results.



    Google has shut down its search engine in mainland China, saying it can no longer comply with Chinese laws that demand it censor its own search results.

    The Chinese government has lashed out at the decision, accusing Google of violating promises made when it entered the Chinese market.
