China is closing down around 200 Web sites for featuring illegal sex-drug advertisements, state media reported on Wednesday.

Close to 6,000 Web sites have been flagged for carrying illegal advertisements that are sexually suggestive or involve sex-related drugs the People’s Daily reported, the Communist Party’s newspaper. Some 199 Web sites would be closed and 130 "rectified", the newspaper said. It did not mention what would happen to the rest.

Last week China’s Ministry of Information Industry and the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television issued new regulations for online video. The new rules require that online video be broadcast only by state owned or state-controlled companies. The new regulations will become effective January 31. Providers will have to delete and report offending content.

"Those who provide Internet videos services should insist on serving the people, serve socialism and abide by the moral code of socialism," the rules says.
