China Angry at Google Map

From BBC News:

"China has reacted angrily to a decision by the internet search engine Google to stop calling Taiwan a Chinese province.

Google deleted the words "a province of the People's Republic of China" from its Taiwan map after complaints from pro-independence groups on the island.
A Chinese official in the US told state media he was disappointed at the move.

Taiwan has a tense relationship with Beijing. Many Taiwanese see the island as a separate country, although Beijing sees it as part of Chinese territory."
