Google said it disabled 210 YouTube channels as part of its efforts to "combat coordinated influence operations."

The Alphabet Inc. (GOOG, GOOGL) unit said it discovered "coordinated" behavior related to uploading videos about Hong Kong protests.

"This discovery was consistent with recent observations and actions related to China announced by Facebook and Twitter," Google said.
