World Journal, Posted: Jul 30, 2008

BEIJING Any Internet system construction, update and repair has to be put on hold from Aug. 1 to Aug. 25 as a result of the Olympics, reports the World Journal. The new regulation has been in place since July 20 in cities that will host the Olympic games, including Beijing, Hong Kong, Tianjin, Shenyang, Shanghai, Qingdao and Qihuangdao. The Chinese government says it is a tradition in China to do this when there is any big event.
