    This is a gutsy move by Google, and will be perceived as provocative by China, who see Hong Kong’s separate legal system as an unfortunate but necessary local holdover from British rule. Attempting to use that status to reach out to other Chinese users risks action within Hong Kong itself, on the already-established pretext that Google is collaborating with the enemies of China.

    Can anyone report what redirects are in place in Macao?

    Same here, type “google.cn” in Firefox address bar and instant redirect.

    Went to the BBC News website after reading this and it’s in their Breaking news ticker on the front page. The story it links to has little information at time of writing, but no doubt will be flashed out over the next hour or so
