The Chinese government has once again prevented its citizens from accessing video-sharing service YouTube.
Following reports that access to the site had been cut, a spokesperson from parent company Google confirmed to vnunet.com that YouTube was indeed being blocked.
"We do not know the reason for the blockage, and are working as quickly as possible to restore access to our users in China," the spokesperson said.
Google declined to comment further on whether it was speaking with the Chinese government about the matter.
The block is reported to have stemmed from a recent round of videos depicting protests and police reactions in Tibet. According to the BBC, one particular video depicted a policeman beating Tibetan monks and protestors.
This is not the first time that YouTube has run foul of the Chinese government. Similar Tibetan protest videos last year led the country to block domestic access to the site.
