外文标题：China cracks down on strippers at funerals
BEIJING: Chinese authorities on Thursday bared the details of their latest anti-vice sweep: a campaign to halt the hiring of strippers at funerals
In a statement posted on its website, China's ministry of culture pledged a "crackdown" on the practice, which it said has become increasingly common in rural areas.
China's official Xinhua news agency said such performances are typically organised in order to draw a larger crowd at last rites.
One example cited by the ministry of culture was a funeral in north China's Hebei province.
"Two strippers wearing revealing clothes danced on a stage at a public square in our village at night on February 15," an eyewitness surnamed Zhang told the state-run Global Times newspaper earlier this month.
In another case later that month, a troupe in east China's Jiangsu province was detained for funeral performances that drew crowds of as many as 500 local residents, according to provincial news site xichu.net.
