Beijing: More than 30,000 suspects have been arrested in a two-month long crackdown on porn and gambling activities in China's south Guangdong Province.

The province has so far arrested 3,014 people and more than 5,000 others were put under criminal detention in the campaign, the Guangdong Provincial Public Security Department said.

In one case, police cracked down an online gambling gang in Huizhou City on November 24. The gambling activities involved funds totalling 30 million yuan, (USD five million), state-run Xinhua news agency reported yesterday.

Police said they will continue to crack down on the illegal activities to prevent them from rebounding. Earlier this year, police in the province had captured 3,033 suspects in a prostitution crackdown launched after a February media exposure of sex services offered at hotels in the city of Dongguan, which is notorious for its illegal sex trade.
