BRUSSELS (AFP) - The latest remedies offered by US giant Google to complaints that it abuses its dominant position in the Internet search market do not go far enough, the European Commission said on Friday.

"The latest proposals are not acceptable in the sense that they are not proposals that can eliminate our concerns regarding competition," EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia told Spanish national radio, adding that it was still too early to talk of sanctions.
