A northern Chinese city has launched a targeted campaign against organized crime after a brutal assault on four women at a local restaurant sparked nationwide outrage and renewed discussion of sexual harassment and gang violence.

The campaign in Tangshan in Hebei province began Sunday and will last for two weeks.

Other acts that will be cracked down on include extortion, mass gambling, organized prostitution, and shielding or conniving crimes.
