"China launched a campaign Friday to rid the internet of audio and video materials that promote terrorism and violence."
Beijing, June 24 - Terrorist groups are using internet to recruit people, raise funds and plan attacks in China, the State Internet Information Office (SIIO) said Tuesday.

The official said that the groups have sought to spread terrorism and violent beliefs and teach terrorist skills online, and added that such actions must be struck down immediately.
