China shuts down thousands of Net cafes

From MSNBC:

Chinese authorities shut down more than 12,575 Internet cafes from October to December last year for operating illegally, the government said.
The purpose of the crackdown was to create a ‘safer environment for young people in China,’ the official Xinhua News Agency said Sunday. It didn’t give details of the violations, but said the businesses closed ‘were mainly located nearby primary schools and middle schools.’
