The Chinese government has ordered Microsoft Corp.'s /zigman2/quotes/207732364/composite MSFT -0.83% Bing search engine to be blocked, the Financial Times reported Wednesday night. Bing was the last major non-Chinese search engine available in China, after Google was blocked in 2010; homegrown Baidu /zigman2/quotes/209050136/composite BIDU +4.32% is the dominant Chinese search engine. The Financial Times reported that two unnamed sources confirmed the government had ordered the site blocked. Microsoft confirmed the news in a statement: "We've confirmed that Bing is currently inaccessible in China and are engaged to determine [our] next steps." China heavily sensors the internet for its users, and sites such as Facebook /zigman2/quotes/205064656/composite FB -1.27% and Twitter /zigman2/quotes/203180645/composite TWTR +1.41% are banned. The move comes amid ongoing trade tensions between the U.S. and China, including the detention of a top Huawei executive in Canada at the request of the U.S. government.
