A 22-year-old Chinese computer student has been jailed for four years for running a porn site. State media reports that the student - known only by his surname Xie - was arrested in July for flogging XXX flicks.

The court heard how Xie, a student at the east China's Zhejiang University of Technology, had earned more than 160,000 yaun (£10,700) from his porn site which attracted some 1,500 subscribers.

As well as having all his hard-earned income confiscated, Xie was also slapped with a 20,000 yuan (£1,350) fine.

China has mounted a major crackdown on adult websites,with officials claiming that the rampant increase in online porn is damaging the moral fabric of the nation - and young people in particular.

One official said that porn "severely damaged social style, polluted the social environment, and harmed the physical and psychological health of the young people".

Last month Wang Yanli was jailed for four years for running an online strip joint. She was believed to be the first woman to be banged up behind bars, following China's tough new stand against internet pornography.

Three weeks ago China's Supreme People's Court and Supreme People's Procuratorate ruled that anyone caught running a porn site faced life imprisonment. ®
