Iran has blocked access to the Google search engine and its Gmail email service, the Mehr news agency reported on Monday.
"I can confirm these sites have been filtered," said Hamid Shahriari, the secretary of Iran's National Council of Information.
He did not explain why the sites were being blocked. Google, Gmail and several other foreign sites appeared to be inaccessible to Iranian users from Monday morning.
