Dragonfly, the controversial plan by Google to launch its search engine in China, has been scrapped, according to vice president of public policy, Karan Bhatia. The executive told a US Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that no plans now existed to move forward with the project, which had generated considerable criticism, both from Google’s own employees and from the Trump administration. It had previously been reported that work on the scheme had been halted, but Bhatia’s concession was the first time it had been officially confirmed by senior Google management.
