Google News Blocked

Google news is currently blocked in Pakistan. This block happened after the horrific bomb blast in Karachi on April 11, 2006. This attack has brought the city of Karachi to a standstill, and more people are at home. Many of them have turned to the internet for more information. One of the best sources of information on current events is Google News, and consequently the government has blocked it along with many other websites.

This is a sad day for the entire country. The stench of fear is in the air, and the government is adding to it by restricting access to information.

Update: Google news is now accessible from Pakistan.
