China cracks down on sex-drug Web sites

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:25 pm

China is shutting down about 200 Web sites for carrying illegal sex-drug advertisements, state media said on Wednesday, the latest in a string of measures to clean up the Internet.

About 6,000 Web sites have been found carrying illegal, sexually suggestive adverts involving sex-related drugs or health supplements, said the People’s Daily, the Communist Party’s newspaper.

Some 199 would be closed and 130 “rectified”, the newspaper said. It did not say what would happen to the rest.
