Users in China were able to access online services for Google Inc on Thursday, after more than a month of severe disruption that almost completely blocked people from using features such as its search, maps and e-mail functions.

Users told Reuters they could use Google Maps and access the Google.com search engine, which redirects to a Hong Kong version of the website.
