BEIJING, July 13. /TASS/. Internet messenger Telegram became unavailable on the territory of mainland China on Monday.
Users also had difficulties with entering the messenger’s website.
On July 12, China’s Jemin Jibao newspaper reported that Telegram was among the applications used by the lawyers who were detained by local police on charges of organizing mass protests and spreading rumors for money.
"Telegram was, mainly, used for connecting groups of people, for sending statements defaming the party and the government,"- the newspaper said citing one of the detainees.
On July 10, the messenger was subjected to DDoS-attack all over the world.
According to the statement published on the messenger’s website, "the attack was launched from Eastern Asia".
Telegram is a free messenger for smartphones that was launched in August 2013 by Russian internet entrepreneurs Pavel and Nikolay Durov.
