Internet addresses set for change

The internet regulator has approved plans to allow non-Latin-script web addresses, in a move that is set to transform the online world.

The board of Icann voted at its annual meeting in Seoul to allow domain names in Arabic, Chinese and other characters in what is being described as the biggest change to the way the internet works since it was created 40 years ago.

More than half of the 1.6 billion people who use the internet speak languages with non-Latin scripts.
