Police in China have arrested 10 people on charges of copying and distributing naked photos of Hong Kong actor EDISON CHAN with a series of singers and actresses. The suspects were picked up in the southern city of Shenzen. The explicit pictures, which were reportedly stored on Infernal Affairs star Chan's computer, were recently stolen and leaked on popular Chinese internet search engine Baidu. Among those affected by the scandal is clean-cut Hong Kong pop star Gillian Chong, who last week (ends15Feb08) apologised for photos showing her and Chen in bed together. Pornography is illegal in China, where authorities also monitor the web.
