The news agency is unclear as to why its site have been blocked. Other major media outlets like Bloomberg, The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal have also been unavailable in the country for quite some time now.
A Reuters spokeswoman said, “Reuters is committed to practicing fair and accurate journalism worldwide. We recognize the great importance of news about China to all our customers, and we hope that our sites will be restored in China soon.”
We’ve contacted Reuters to find out more and will update this post when we hear back.
