Police arrest 150 in Macau casino raids

Macau police raided casinos and hotels and detained 150 people over the weekend as part of an effort to curtail violent crime in the Chinese territory, which is home to the biggest gambling market in the world.

The former Portuguese colony has been rocked in recent weeks by an attack on a prominent business figure and the murders of three Chinese women in two separate incidents, including one at a five-star hotel.
