Beijing: China's top anti-pornography office on Thursday announced its latest mission: a campaign to remove amateur sex videos from China's social media. Long intolerant of obscenity online, Beijing authorities are now trying to keep China's cyberspace clean at a time when it has become easier for people to use mobile phone to make sex videos and use social media and cloud storage to share such content.

In July, a sex video taken with a mobile phone inside a fitting room of the clothing retailer Uniqlo in Beijing spread on China's social media. Police have detained four people on suspicion of spreading the obscene content. On Wednesday, sexual scenes were somehow aired on a giant display screen at a shopping mall in the eastern city of Lishui, and clips of the footage spread online, prompting police to probe who was spreading the content, according to media reports.
