China blocks all language editions of Wikipedia

Beijing has broadened its block of online encyclopedia Wikipedia to include all language editions, reported internet censorship research group OONI. It said China started blocking all language editions of Wikipedia last month. Previously, most editions of Wikipedia -- besides the Chinese language version, which was reportedly blocked in 2015 -- were available, OONI said in their report. China’s online censorship apparatus -- dubbed the “Great Firewall” -- blocks a large number of foreign sites in the country, such as Google, Facebook and The New York Times.
