China anti-corruption hunt catches 'tiger' official


BEIJING (Reuters) - China's anti-graft watchdog has launched an investigation into the former top official of the central province of Shaanxi, the latest "tiger" to be ensnared in President Xi Jinping's crackdown on corruption.

Since taking office in 2012, Xi has waged a multi-year war on graft, which he has pledged not to abate until officials, in his words, "dare not, cannot and do not want to, be corrupt".
