According to local media, internet giant Yahoo closed its news and community services in China at the weekend.

Yahoo’s news and community services have shut down in China, following the closure of its email service last month.

The Yahoo China home page now redirects users to a site run by Alibaba, which manages Yahoo’s Chinese operation. Before it redirect, the home page shows a farewell message citing adjustments to its operations strategy as the reason for the change. Yahoo has a significant stake in Alibaba, the business-to-business online retailer which has been licensed to run its Chinese services.
