    Fearful Final Hours for Briton in China The day before his death in the fog-shrouded Chinese city of Chongqing, Neil Heywood sensed that something was amiss.

Mr. Heywood told the friend he was "in trouble." After he flew to Chongqing, he tried to telephone his usual contacts but couldn't get through to any of them, according...

    A pipeline pumping natural gas from Myanmar to energy-hungry China has gone fully operational, state-run Chinese media said on Monday. BEIJING: A pipeline pumping natural gas from Myanmar to energy-hungry China has gone fully operational, state-run Chinese media said on Monday. The project, stretching more than 2,500 kilometres from western Myanmar to southwest China, will help the world's second-largest economy feed its growing energy needs. It comes as close political ties between the two nations have weakened, after Myanmar's quasi-civilian regime took office in 2011 and brought in sweeping reforms that have led to the scrapping of most Western sanctions....

    Tiananmen II Minxin Pei : Thu May 10 2012, 03:12 hrs Bo Xilai’s downfall punctures the myth of China’s resilient autocracy Scandals in dictatorships perform several valuable functions. They often discredit their rulers and undermine their legitimacy. In some cases, scandals may even hasten the disintegration of authoritarian regimes by causing infighting among ruling elites or triggering loss of confidence and a crisis. For academics, such scandals frequently provide test cases for validating long-held theories or assumptions about the durability of authoritarian rule. From this perspective, the recent mega-scandal involving Bo Xilai, one of China’s political stars, is particularly useful...

    City divided by disgraced Communist leader's legacy By Ed Flanagan, NBC News CHONGQING, China – Everywhere you go in Chongqing, you can see traces of the complicated legacy of Bo Xilai, the former Communist party chief who ran this municipality of 30 million people until scandal derailed him. At one time destined for a top post in China’s highest echelon of power, the standing committee of the politburo of the Communist Party, Bo aggressively poured money into this municipality in pursuit of his populist agenda. To drive through the windy roads that snake around this hilly metropolis is to see...

    Beijing Steps In to Steady City Bo Ruled By BRIAN SPEGELE BEIJING—A senior Chinese leader expressed concern over the stability of development in Chongqing, the city run by fallen politician Bo Xilai until last month, and promised greater central-government support for the city in the aftermath of the upheaval. The statement marks the latest sign that China's central government is working to secure its hold over Chongqing, where Mr. Bo built a power base that helped launch him to national prominence. In recent weeks Chinese authorities have amped up official rhetoric against Mr. Bo and increased scrutiny of the city's...

    In a storyline that could have been taken straight out of a television crime drama, Wang Lijun--missing former chief of police and current deputy mayor of Chongqing, a sprawling, gritty metropolis in China's interior--is presumably being held in Beijing, following a defection attempt at the U.S. Consulate. As the Machiavellian saga continues to unfold, the Chinese dissident Web site Boxun has reported that Wang uncovered a plot by his former boss, Bo Xilai, and a senior government official, Zhou Yongkang, to seize power from Xi Jinping, heir-apparent to the reins of Communist Party leadership. "They [Bo and Zhou] prepared a...
