China: Bo Xilai Indicted for Bribery, Corruption, Abuse of Power

Chinese state media say disgraced Communist Party heavyweight Bo Xilai has been indicted for bribery, corruption, and abuse of power.

The official Xinhua news agency said Bo was indicted Thursday in Jinan, the capital of the eastern coastal Shandong province.

Several media reports have suggested that Bo's long-awaited trial, China's most scandalous in decades, would take place this week.

Bo's wife, Gu Kailai, has been convicted of murdering British businessman Neil Heywood over a financial dispute last year.
