State Council information official falls to his death
(03-26 13:46)

A top official at China's government information department died after a fall, Communist Party media reported.
Li Wufeng, deputy director of the State Council Information Office “fell to death,’’ the People's Daily newspaper, the mouthpiece of the Communist Party, reported on its English-language Twitter feed.
“Cause is unknown,'' it added, without elaborating.
Chinese news outlet Caixin also reported the death on its website, although it was later deleted.
Li, 56, was appointed in June last year, state media reported at the time, and was previously deputy head of the State Internet Information Office.
Little other information on Li, other than basic biographical facts, was immediately available and he did not appear to be a target of any known investigations.—AFP
