Bing blocked in China due to technical error - Report

Microsoft Corp.’s search engine Bing was blocked in China due to an accidental technical error rather than an attempt at censorship, according to people familiar with the matter, and the search engine is once again accessible in the country.

The government had no intention to block Bing when it stopped working this week, according to two people with knowledge of the matter who asked not to be identified discussing confidential information.

Yeah, sure! We accidentally knocked against the off switch. Sorry, won't happen again (until the next time).
