Hong Kong Broadband Network blocks website to comply with security law
HONG KONG, Jan 14 (Reuters) - Hong Kong Broadband Network (HKBN) said on Thursday it blocked the website for Hong Kong Chronicles in compliance with the city's national security law.
A spokesperson of HKBN confirmed the blockage to Reuters in an email.
Hong Kong Chronicles is a website that publishes material mainly related to anti-government protests in 2019.
The blockage marks the first time the authorities in the city have used a sweeping national security law to censor an internet website. (Reporting by Hong Kong newsroom; Editing by Christian Schmollinger)
