CORRUPTION CLAMPDOWN: Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao wants tougher anti-corruption efforts amid a political scandal over a Politburo member whose wife is a suspect in the murder of a British businessman.

BYE-BYE BO: The Communist Party ousted Bo Xilai and launched an investigation of him. There are questions about whether he tried to quash an investigation into his wife and a household employee in the murder of Briton Neil Heywood.

MONEY MATTERS: There are also strong suspicions that Bo grew wealth from investments and political appointments, although he has not been directly accused of any graft.
