Luis Ramirez: China Shuts More Than 12,000 Internet Cafes

From VOA News:

Chinese officials on Monday said they shut down 12,575 between October and December of last year, as part of what the government calls a campaign to protect children from violent games and pornography. Officials said most of the locations closed down were located near schools.

The crackdown came after the country’s Ministry of Culture last year ordered local governments across China not to approve any new internet cafes within 200 meters of school campuses.
