WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Apple Inc. on Thursday withdrew an urban transport application that allows Hong Kong residents to locate police on a map.
The move came after a Chinese media accused the US group of aiding the pro-democracy movement through smart application
and relocating developers of Hongkongmab Live.
One Chinese media has written that this app "clearly helps hooligans".
Hong Kong, a former British colony in southern China, has been witnessing almost daily protests and movements in recent days, which have developed in recent days into clashes between police and militant demonstrators, accompanied by widespread sabotage.
"No one wants to drag Apple into the unrest in Hong Kong," the Communist Party spokeswoman, China Daily, wrote Wednesday.
"Apple should think about the consequences of its reckless and unwise decision," the newspaper said.
Earlier, Beijing pressured companies, including Cathay Pacific Airlines in Hong Kong and the National Basketball Association of the United States, to stand by them against protesters.
