Hong Kong's largest prostitution website shut down: Police
HONG KONG (AFP) - Hong Kong authorities have shut down the city's largest prostitution website and dozens of people including sex workers have been arrested, officials said on Thursday.
The website directory offered a comprehensive guide to the city's sex trade and solicited prostitutes who often came from outside Hong Kong, they said.
Police said they had broken up a criminal syndicate believed to have controlled the website.
"When they knew there were sex workers coming to Hong Kong, the syndicate would arrange a make-up service and photographers," police officer Au Chin-chau told a press conference.
