Campaign targeting gangs that rob tombs

China's police and heritage protection authorities on Wednesday kicked off a nationwide operation to fight the theft of cultural relics.

"Gangs committing the crimes are becoming professional and organized ... The crimes are getting more intelligent, professional and modernized," Zhang Xinfeng, vice-minister of public security, said on Wednesday.

"Tomb robberies are especially serious."
