China Targets Internet in Crime Sweep

Concern about juvenile crime is prompting Beijing to crack down on illegal Web sites and violent online games in an initiative dubbed "Operation for Tomorrow"

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.
