Google has recognised the Palestinians' upgraded UN status, placing the name "Palestine" on its search engine instead of "Palestinian Territories," a company spokesman said on Friday.
The Google logo is seen on a computer tablet in Paris, on December 4, 2012. Israel has questioned Google's decision to replace the term "Palestinian Territories" with "Palestine" on the Palestinian www.google.ps page, after last year's UN decision to award Palestine observer status.
The domain name www.google.ps, Google's search engine for the territories, now brings up a homepage with "Palestine" written underneath the Google logo.
