CHINESE GENERAL COMMITS SUICIDE AFTER AUTHORITIES LAUNCH GRAFT PROBE AGAINST HIM

BEIJING – Senior Chinese military official Zhang Yang committed suicide at home on Nov 23 after authorities launched an investigation against him, state media said on Tuesday (Nov 28).

Earlier reports have said the probe was for suspected serious disciplinary violations, a euphemism typically used for corruption.

A source close to the former Guangzhou Military Command told the South China Morning Post that Zhang hanged himself at his home in Beijing.
