WASHINGTON — The State Department says it will lodge a formal complaint with Chinese officials next week about the hacking attacks on Google's e-mail service in China.

Spokesman P.J. Crowley says the U.S. also will demand an explanation from China about how the hacking happened and what the Beijing government intends to do about it.

Google has said it will stop censoring Internet search results in China and might close its China-based Google.cn site because of the hacking problem.
