A municipal resolution obliges the popular hangouts to close at 9 pm and bans children in the city of over two million from visiting the cafes during school hours or without a parent or guardian in the evenings.
“The increased number of videoclips, pictures, films and websites that promote aggression, violence and immorality in internet cafes and computer clubs is having a negative impact on underage youth,” the resolution said. “It is one of the main reasons for the growing incidence of violence committed by minors,” it added.
Internet cafes, which are expected to comply within 10 days, have also been told to ensure computers are free of all materials promoting “promiscuity, religious extremism, nationalism, gambling” and to remove posters promoting cruelty and violence from their walls.
