Vastavam web:  A total of 3,918 illegal websites were shut down by China’s Internet watchdogs from April to June this year, official media reported today. The websites included those that published content that jeopardised national security, and those that spread violence, vulgarity or ungrounded rumours, according to the statement by the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) issued last night. More than 810,000 illicit cyber accounts were also closed in the second quarter of the year, the CAC said.
