China corruption fight edges closer to 'red second generation'

Anbang chief's apparent detention suggests growing power struggle in Communist Party

CHONGQING -- China's ever-widening anti-corruption campaign has begun to target even those close to the children of its founding fathers, with a high-flying businessman seen as the latest figure ensnared amid an apparent power struggle within a Communist Party approaching a leadership reshuffle.

Anbang Insurance Group on Tuesday said that its chairman, Wu Xiaohui, was no longer able to fulfill his duties for "personal reasons." He has not been seen in public since May, and local media report that he has been detained by the authorities.
