The ongoing crackdown in China on porn and other illicit material has moved on from the Internet to content meant for mobile phones. So far, 1,250 web sites have been shut down and 41 people have been arrested as part of the initial crackdown.

The crackdown was unveiled by the Chinese government earlier this month, and will last until the beginning of February. The first phase of crackdowns focused only on the major search engines, such as Google and Yahoo.

It is being run by the Ministry of Public Security, the State Council Information Office, the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
