Beijing: Children in China could be banned from playing online games after midnight under a new rule designed to combat internet addiction amid rising concerns over mushrooming military style “boot camps” treatment centres.

The rules, released by the Cyberspace Administration of China, also call on schools to work with “institutions” to help rehabilitate young internet addicts, raising concerns about the risks to children at these centres.

The regulations are the latest effort to stop young people from spending too much time on online games.
