China lists 14 generals snared in anti-corruption campaign

Chinese military prosecutors have released a list of 14 generals convicted of graft or placed under investigation in an accelerating nationwide anti-corruption drive.

Those under investigation include Rear Adm. Guo Zhenggang, the son of the former deputy head of the Central Military Commission that oversees the armed forces.

Others named Monday include leading officers in provincial military commands, as well as ones in the navy, missile corps and National Defense University.

It said Lan Weijie, a former deputy commander in the central province of Hubei, was sentenced to life in prison in January for corruption and illegal firearms possession.

Last year, prosecutors indicted Xu Caihou, the military's former No. 2 official, on bribery charges, in a show by President Xi Jinping that no officials would be off-limits.
