The Chinese government has ordered Microsoft Corp.'s /quotes/zigman/20493/composite MSFT +1.43% 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 /quotes/zigman/97715/composite BIDU -2.70% 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 /quotes/zigman/9962609/composite FB +1.16% and Twitter /quotes/zigman/23556538/composite TWTR +3.09% 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.
