Yahoo 'helped jail China writer'
"Internet giant Yahoo has been accused of supplying information to China which led to the jailing of a journalist for "divulging state secrets". Reporters Without Borders said Yahoo's Hong Kong arm helped China link Shi Tao's e-mail account and computer to a message containing the information. The media watchdog accused Yahoo of becoming a "police informant" in order to further its business ambitions.
The companies say they have to abide by local regulations, and point out that since China is set to be the world's biggest internet market, they cannot ignore it."
