Main Google search site back up in China

Google's main search site at www.google.com is back online in China, the Paris-based Reporters Without Borders said on Friday. The company has been criticized for launching a censored version of its site for China at www.google.cn.

"Google's unblocking tends to confirm the theory that online censorship was stepped up for the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre" on June 4, the group said in statement. To circumvent censorship, Reporters Without Borders said it recommends users download DynaPass.
