BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese prosecutors have charged disgraced senior politician Sun Zhengcai with bribery, state media said on Tuesday.

Sun, who was abruptly removed from his post as party chief of the southwestern metropolis of Chongqing in July, had illegally accepted a huge amount of assets, the official Xinhua news agency said, citing prosecutors.
