    IM services targeted

    China on May 27 started a monthlong campaign to eliminate malpractice* on instant messaging services like WeChat.

    While such services have become popular online communication channels, some people have used them to distribute illegal and harmful information, said a statement from the State Internet Information Office (SIIO).

    The campaign will target public accounts on instant messaging services, which can spread information on a large scale and mobilize followers.

    

    HK may cut visitor numbers

    Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying said the government is “listening to views” about how to handle the annual influx* of 40 million mainland visitors, a number that is expected to reach 100 million by 2020.

    Speaking before an Executive Council meeting on May 27, he said a 20-percent cut in the number of mainland visitors to Hong Kong was one option.

    Some legislators have called for the one-year visas that allow multiple entries, introduced in 2009, to be scrapped*.

    

    Heretic sect members detained

    Six suspects detained for intentional homicide* in Shandong Province are members of a heretic* sect*, local police announced on Saturday.

    The victim, surnamed Wu, was beaten to death on May 28 at a McDonald’s chain restaurant in Zhaoyuan City after she refused to give her telephone number to the suspects, who were allegedly trying to recruit new members for their sect, police said.

    Police arrived at the scene four minutes after being called and captured the six suspects in the act. All suspects are members of Quannengshen sect.

    

    Tobacco taxes to be increased

    China has announced it will raise tobacco taxes to help protect children from smoking.

    The move would mean young people are less likely to be exposed to second-hand smoke, according to National Health and Family Planning Commission Vice Director Cui Li.

    “[We] will adopt comprehensive measures, including raising taxes on tobacco products, to keep minors* away from the harm of cigarettes,” Li said.(SD-Agencies)
