Google is said to be on the point of shutting down its search engine in China.

According to a report in the Financial Times, talks about censorship with the Chinese authorities have broken down, and the search giant is "99,9%" certain to close its operations in that country.
This follows the Chinese government's move on Friday, when it warned that it wouldn't compromise on 'net censorship to keep Google in the country.
In January, Google first raised the threat of exiting the Chinese market when the Google accounts of primarily human rights activists had been hacked and monitored by unauthorised third parties.
