A man has been executed in southern China after being found guilty of amassing a fortune while his state-owned investment company went bankrupt.
The Chinese official news agency, Xinhua, said the man, Li Yaoqi, the former chairman of Hainan International Investment Group, was convicted of illegally amassing over $5m over a period of six years.
His execution comes as China continues an anti-corruption drive.
On Monday the deputy governor of Anhui province was sentenced to death for corruption.
