Yahoo has reached a settlement with the families of the two Chinese writers whom the internet company helped the Chinese government expose, The Wall Street Journal reported. The families sued Yahoo earlier this year after the company allegedly gave Chinese authorities information that led to the imprisonment and torture of two journalists. Yahoo had previously insisted that it had no choice in complying with Chinese authorities. The terms of the settlement include Yahoo's payment of the families' legal fees in addition to "financial, humanitarian, and legal support," AP reported. Yahoo head Jerry Yang apologized to the families last week, insisting that the company is doing everything it can to free the two journalists.
