In brief Hong Kong is looking to crack down on spam, according to state media in China.

New anti-spam laws are due to be introduced next year, reports Xinhua, as part of a crackdown on junk emails, faxes and automated telephone calls.

Government officials are working with telecoms companies to draw up the new rules.
