 Chinese Go Full Throttle Against Pornography
In a bid to give a thrust to its anti-porn campaign, the Chinese Government has begun sending anti-porn messages on mobiles.

After shutting down 1,250 porn websites, the government will now keep a check on text messages, reports the China Daily.

Seven government departments including the State Council's Information Office, Ministry of Public Security and Ministry of Culture jointly launched the campaign at a meeting, aiming to outline future tasks of the move.

"We will incorporate 'lewd' messages spread via mobile phones into the crackdown," they said.

The government has deleted more than 3.2 million items of online information alleged to contain porn and vulgar content by Wednesday since January 5.

And so far, 41 people have been detained for "promulgating porn online".
