China's internet censors have blocked searches relating to an ongoing protest in the village of Wukan, web users say.
Users of Sina Weibo, the country's Twitter-like micro-blogging site, say searches for Wukan return no results. Instead, a message appears saying: "According to relevant law, regulations and policies, search results for Wukan cannot be displayed."
A land dispute in the Guangdong village intensified this week when a villager died in police custody. Hundreds of villagers are now locked in a stand-off with security forces.
Roads into the village have been closed and are being guarded by heavily armed security personnel........
