CHINA LOOSENS INTERNET CONTROLS

By CBR Staff Writer

Beijing has loosened controls barring Chinese Internet users from accessing foreign news sources but is keeping watch for politically suspect content on the worldwide computer network, an official of the State Council or cabinet said. Blocks imposed last year on Internet Web sites operated by CNN, the Wall Street Journal and other news providers had all been removed. Some newspapers, magazines, articles and publications that were sensitive to the mainland were blocked… but after checks they were reopened, said the official.
