China arrests 101 people for obscene Internet activity – AFP

From AFP, via TODAYonline:

China has arrested 101 criminal suspects since police started to crack down on Internet “obscenity” in August.

The suspects included people who used the Internet to set up illegal chatrooms that recruit others to participate in pornographic movies, the Xinhua news agency said, citing the public security ministry.

“This behavior has severely polluted the Internet environment, done harm to juvenile’s physical and mental health and caused strong public anger,” the ministry said.

The special crackdown was jointly initiated by the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of Information Industry and the Information Office of China’s cabinet, the State Council in August.
