Chinese police have arrested 28 suspects in an expanding crackdown on Internet pornography that authorities vowed will be no “flash in the pan,” official media said Friday.

The campaign to scrub the country’s Internet of “vulgar” content has so far resulted in 29 criminal cases and police have ordered the removal of 46,000 pornographic and other “harmful” items from websites, the Xinhua news agency reported.

The report said the 28 suspects arrested in the campaign included 4 men in their twenties who ran the “Midnight Prostitute Call” website from eastern China. They also included two men accused of using a video chat service to defraud customers.
