Google Says Services Inaccessible in Syria, Internet Unavailable

May 7 (Bloomberg) -- Google Inc.’s services in Syria are now inaccessible, the operator of the world’s most popular search engine said.

Google’s transparency report, which tracks the status of Google products available to users around the world, showed a dropoff in Internet traffic in Syria, which is in the midst of a civil war. Services became inaccessible just before 3 p.m. New York time, according to the report.

Umbrella Security Labs, part of Web traffic-services provider OpenDNS Inc., also reported a “significant drop in traffic from Syria.”
