Official state media reported on Thursday that Chinese President Xi Jinping is to take the reins of a government body for Internet security and aims to turn China into a "cyber power" as the country steadily tightens its grip online. Since coming to power, Xi has presided over an intensifying online crackdown that has drawn criticism from rights groups and dissidents at home and abroad.
