China blocks New York Times

China has blocked access to The New York Times after a lengthy expose claiming the family of Wen Jiabao has amassed assets worth $2.7 billion through a web of investments.

The report published Friday says most of Wen’s family’s wealth was accumulated after he rose to high office in 2002.
New York Times’ spokeswoman Eileen Murphy says the paper hoped access to the sites could be restored shortly.

The report is a blow to Wen’s reputation as a politician concerned with bettering the lives of ordinary Chinese.
