A Chinese man has been sentenced to two years in jail after hacking
into a Red Cross website set up to collect funds for the victims of
the Sichuan earthquake.

Yang Litao, 23, was found guilty of fraud and sentenced by a court in
eastern Jiangsu province, state media reported.

The site tipped off the authorities and Yang was arrested before
significant funds could be transferred to his account.
