“China’s Internet censors have blocked searches for the Chinese name of Jon Huntsman, the U.S. Ambassador to China, on popular microblogging sites after a video and photos were posted online of him appearing outside a McDonald’s in Beijing where activists had urged people to start a “Jasmine Revolution” in China.

You can still search for Mr Huntsman’s name in English on Sina Weibo and other popular micro-blogging sites, but searches for his Chinese name “Hong Bopei” on Sina Weibo produced a message saying: “According to the relevant laws, regulations and policies, the search results cannot be shown.””
