BEIJING -- China's Communist Party seeks to advance the "rule of law," it declared in a communique Thursday that seems as much about tightening internal controls as it is about easing public frustration with capricious legal enforcement.

     The party's Central Committee closed its latest plenary session without deciding the fate of Zhou Yongkang, the object of much speculation in and outside China. Zhou, who formerly sat on the Politburo's powerful Standing Committee, has become the biggest "tiger" netted in President Xi Jinping's campaign against corruption.
