China concerned about rise in prostitution


The Chinese culture minister, Sun Jia-zheng, has voiced concern about an increase in prostitution, accusing local government officials of being involved in some cases.

Mr Sun said that increased competition in the entertainment industry had led to some dance halls becoming venues for prostitution.

He added that he supported a nation-wide campaign against the sex business.
