HEFEI, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- Police in east China's Anhui Province have detained 20 people for operating underground casinos and using violence to collect debts.

The arrests were made in a ten-hour coordinated operation on Friday in Huoqiu County.

The operation capped a months-long investigation, which started in July after local police received a tip-off.

According to the police, the suspects have been operating underground casinos and using violence and intimidations to collect debts since March. They have made more than one million yuan (over 144,000 U.S. dollars).

Further investigation is underway. Enditem
