BEIJING (AFP) - China will not allow any more cybercafes to open this year, state press announced Tuesday, the latest move by the nation's communist rulers to restrict the rising influence of the Internet.
Chinese authorities will not approve any more Internet cafe licences this year, the official Xinhua news agency said, citing a new notice issued by 14 central government authorities.
There are currently about 113,000 Internet bars in China, Xinhua said, citing official figures from the Ministry of Information Industry.
