HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Connecticut's attorney general says Craigslist has confirmed that it has removed adult services ads from its global sites.

The online service already had deleted that section on its U.S. sites in September under pressure from officials over whether it was adequately policing illegal ads.

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal says Craigslist representatives confirmed to his office Tuesday that it had also removed erotic services listings from hundreds of sites in dozens of other countries.

Representatives of San Francisco-based Craigslist did not immediately return messages Tuesday about when the change went into effect. The removal was first reported on Wired magazine's website.
