KONFRONTASI-China has blocked access to Gmail, Google's email service, the founder of a Beijing-based firm says.
The world's biggest email service has been largely inaccessible inside China. Users, however, could still access the service by using third-party mail applications, rather than the webpage.
"But they have blocked those ways of accessing," said Jeremy Goldkorn, founder and director of Danwei, a company that tracks Chinese media and the Internet, on Monday, adding, "I think this is pretty confirmed. It is now already four, five days, so this is real."
