Vice grip: Despite the closure of 7,397 brothels and the arrest of 6,297 brothel-owners and pimps since 1994, Vietnam reports that prostitution is continuing to flourish. A main area for the trade in Hanoi is in streets close to the public security ministry.
Clean air act: Starting next month, El Al flights will show only cartoons and nature films in the rear section of its jumbo jets, following complains from Orthodox Jews about explicit sex in in-flight films.
