Google has modified their AdWords policy to restrict AdSense Ads that may be about sensitive issues:
Sensitive issues are usually identified in response to exceptional global events that cannot be predicted and therefore are not outlined here.
Events that may affect our Sensitive Issues policy include natural disasters, tragic occurrences or war/conflict situations.
Ads for news sites and charitable/relief/aid organizations are generally permissible under this policy.
