China is blocking VPN services that let users skirt online censorship of popular websites such as Google and Facebook amid a wider crackdown on online information, tech companies and specialists said Friday.Many foreigners in China as well as millions of Chinese depend on VPNs to connect to servers outside the country and access blocked information and Google-based business tools.Google services have been periodically blocked or limited since 2010 when the company said it would no longer cooperate with China's censors.While the controls hurt businesses that depend on online information and tools, Chinese censors are more worried about restricting political information, Xiao said.
