3 more officials ousted from ruling party
(07-02 17:49)

China's ruling Communist Party has expelled three more senior officials in an anti-graft crackdown, including a former aide to a retired security czar who was one of the country's most powerful politicians.
The party's anti-corruption agency said on its website Wednesday that it expelled Ji Wenlin, the ex-vice governor of the southern island province of Hainan.
It said Ji demanded and received a "huge amount'' of bribes and that he committed adultery.
As with several others who have been expelled in the campaign, Ji has personal and professional connections to powerful former Chinese official Zhou Yongkang, currently the subject of a rumored investigation.
Ji was a key aide to Zhou in the last three of his central government positions before taking a series of positions in Hainan's local government. --AP
