Chinese anti-graft agency says deputy head of stock market regulator under investigation

China's main anti-corruption agency is investigating the deputy head of the country's stock market regulator.

The ruling Communist Party's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection says Zhang Yujun is suspected of "severe violations of discipline," a term usually used to mean corruption.

It gave no details but follows announcements that Chinese authorities are investigating brokerages and government employees on charges of insider trading and other offenses.
