Olympic Clean Up

In the final months leading up to the Beijing Olympics, the Chinese authorities are putting the final touches in place in order to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Beggars, street peddlers, prostitutes and other undesirables are disappearing from streets on government orders to clean up the city's image. Domestic critics are being silenced, and newspapers are also reportedly banned from printing negative stories on the Games.

The games open on 8th August 2008.
