Articles reposted in censorship row; WORLD BULLETINS.

CAMBRIDGE University Press has agreed to restore more than 300 politically sensitive articles that had been removed from the publisher's website in China at the behest of authorities, the editor of The China Quarterly journal said.

Tim Pringle told the Associated Press that the publisher agreed to repost the articles immediately.

The action followed a petition circulating among academics calling on the university press to turn down censorship requests from the Chinese government.

Cambridge University Press said on Friday that it had complied with a request to block certain articles from The China Quarterly within China.

They touch on politically sensitive subjects, including the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown.
