China EXECUTES Two Politicians For Corruption

China has executed two former vice-mayors for corruption, as Beijing shows it is being tough on graft – which Communisty Party General Secretary Hu Jintao has called one of the four dangers facing the party.

The two former officials, from the scenic and booming eastern cities of Hangzhou and Suzhou took more than 250 million yuan (HK$321.4 million) between them in bribes from real estate developers in exchange for helping them acquire land and related preferential policies, the Supreme People’s Court said.
