China blocks Carrefour on net



BEIJING: Internet users in China are no longer able to access sites featuring the word Carrefour, after authorities blocked references to the French retailer. Reports said anyone searching for Carrefour were confronted with a message reading "the search result may contain illegal content, so we cannot display the result". Carrefour became the target of anti-French sentiment from Chinese protesters after Tibet-related disturbances during the Olympic torch relay in Paris.
