Police across Guangdong province detained more than 540 suspected gamblers after breaking up 20 organized groups suspected of running soccer betting operations online during the ongoing FIFA World Cup competition.

According to a statement released by the Guangdong Department of Public Security on Thursday, police also eliminated more than 70 apps and websites and shut down 250 online social media chat groups during the campaign.

The campaign, which focuses on stopping online soccer betting, will continue until the World Cup ends on Sunday. It was launched simultaneously in 21 prefecture-level cities in the province after the World Cup kicked off in mid-June.
