Sichuan top party official under graft probe
(12-05 16:23)

Sichuan deputy party chief Li Chuncheng became the first senior official under graft probe since Xi Jinping -- who replaced Hu Jintao as the party's leader last month -- vowed to take down corruption.
Several state media, including Xinhua news agency and Youth Daily, reported that Li has been investigated by the disciplinary committee of the ruling Communist Party in China.
Li was appointed Sichuan's deputy party chief in September 2011, after serving in the province for 15 years. He was elected into the CPC Central Committee.
