Following the story in The Business about the US developing satellites to shoot down the EU’s Galileo satellites if they were used by a hostile power – like China, the news agency AFP asked for an official comment from the Chinese authorities.

A story was duly posted on EU Business this morning, relaying a complete denial from the Chinese that they intended to use the system for anything other than civilian purposes.

However, even though the story is still flagged up on the Google news site, the link is no longer functional and EU Business reports that the entry has been “removed”. They really, really do not want this issue discussed.
