China's government has told police across the country to get tough on prostitution, gambling and drugs following an expose in the "sin city" of Dongguan, where a crackdown on prostitution led to the detention of nearly 1,000 people this month.

The announcement, on the Ministry of Public Security's official website late on Monday, said investigations had begun in several provinces, and police had broken up 73 vice rings and closed down 2,410 prostitution and gambling dens over the past week.
