China's Government Shuts Down Tencent Regional Website For a Week

On October 19, 2014, the state-sponsored Cnwest.com published an article entitled “Tencent Daqin Website Shuttered for Seven Days for Violating Regulations” (腾讯大秦网因违规被关停7天). Some excerpts:
Recently, the Provincial Internet Information Office decided to sanction Tencent's Daqin Net by shutting it down for seven days on the grounds that the site's content was not closely monitored, there was negligence in oversight, and malicious and harmful information was transmitted in violation of the Rules on the Administration of Internet News Information Services and other the relevant regulations. 
今日,因腾讯大秦网对网站内容把关不严、疏于监控,放任恶性有害信息传播,违反了《互联网新闻信息服务管理规定》等有关规定,省互联网信息办公室决定对其处以关停7天的处罚。
