China blocks all language editions of Wikipedia

BBC
China has broadened its block of online encyclopedia Wikipedia to include all language editions.

According to a report by the Open Observatory of Network Interference (OONI), 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. 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. Topics that are deemed too sensitive are also scrubbed. 

In November, China's cyberspace authority said it had removed over nine thousand accounts on Chinese social media platforms like messaging app WeChat and the Twitter-like Weibo that it accused of spreading politically harmful information and rumours.
