Alphabet Inc.'s Google plans to launch a version of its search engine in China that will block some websites and search terms, two sources said, in a move that could mark its return to a market it abandoned eight years ago on censorship concerns.Google, which quit China's search engine market in 2010, has been actively seeking ways to re-enter China where many of its products are blocked by regulators.The Intercept earlier reported Google's China plans Wednesday, citing internal Google documents and people familiar with the plans.Chinese state-owned Securities Times, however, said reports of the return of Google's search engine to China were not true, citing information from "relevant departments".A separate report, by technology news site The Information Wednesday, said that Google was developing a news-aggregation app for use in China that would comply with the country's censorship laws.Google's main search platform has been blocked in China since 2010, but it has been attempting to make new inroads into China.
