Beijing calls for an international "fox" hunt

Yancheng Prison, east of Beijing, offers convicted senior officials relatively luxurious digs.

Chinese President Xi Jinping's campaign against corruption focuses on high-ranking and local officials, known respectively as "tigers" and "flies." Now he is also going after "foxes" -- allegedly corrupt individuals who have fled the country.

     Beijing has officially asked the U.S. and French governments for help with the chase. To sweeten the deal, it is offering to share whatever ill-gotten assets are seized, from houses and cars to bank deposits.
