China Targets Internet in Crime Sweep

From AP:

Seeking to ferret out online games considered overly violent or unhealthy, China has targeted illegal Web sites, computer markets and Internet cafes as part of a campaign to rein in juvenile crime.

The crackdown, christened “Operation For Tomorrow,” is also aimed at Web sites offering unregistered playing platforms or services for gamers that can be downloaded, the official Xinhua News Agency said Tuesday.

The plan will “use the law to attack, investigate and prosecute … to cleanse the environment in which young people are raised and prevent and reduce juvenile crime and illegal activity,” the report said.
