Man held for inciting terrorist attacks

A man was detained for alleged online incitement to launch "terrorist attacks," Shanghai police said yesterday.

The man, surnamed Qiang, will be held for 10 days.

The 29-year-old Qiang wrote the "harmful" words several times since April 1 to let off stream of losing his job, said officers.

He used QQ's popular online chat platform as the tool, according to police.

Police did not say whether Qiang's words resulted in any damage in the city, and they didn't reveal what he said.

Crackdowns on online rumors and other statements viewed as dangerous have intensified in China recently.

Authorities are mainly targeting information related to smuggling of firearms, drugs and toxic chemicals, as well as the sale of human organs, the counterfeiting of certificates and invoices, and trading in personal information that raises privacy concerns.
