Top Chinese general jailed for life for graft

Thursday 08:59 GMT

A former top Chinese general has been sentenced to life in prison for bribery and having an unclear source of assets, state news agency Xinhua reported on Wednesday.

It represented a quick fall from grace for a general who had accompanied President Xi Jinping on his first trip to visit US President Donald Trump in 2017. Xinhua reported that the military court also stripped Fang of his political rights for life and ordered the confiscation of all his personal assets.
