Street View halted in India

The Google Street View cars, to collect images of streets in cities around the world, can no longer travel to Bangalore in southern India. This interruption occurs Wednesday, June 22, less than a month after the announcement of the mapping service in the country. Google has received a letter from the authorities of the city.

Asked by the website MEDIANAME, a spokesman for Google, said: "We stopped our cars until we can answer questions and concerns of the police." Launched in 2007, Google Street View provides panoramic views of streets that allows users to virtually move around, but this service has triggered a series of controversies in many countries, including France, Netherlands and Germany.
