China Arrests Thousands In Latest Internet "Crime" Crackdown

http://j.mp/O0ymxI  (BBC)

   More than 10,000 suspects have been arrested and 600 criminal gangs
   "busted" in China's latest cybercrime crackdown, the authorities say
   ...  Beijing's police force said it had arrested 5,007 people
   suspected of internet-related crimes and closed 263 internet cafes as
   part of its efforts to "protect the physical and mental health of
   young people" using the web.  Revealing the numbers, the chief of the
   Beijing Public Security Bureau, Fu Zhenghua, warned users they faced
   being severely punished if they "attacked" the country's leaders
