GUIYANG, China (REUTERS) - The trial of disgraced senior Chinese leader Bo Xilai will not be held in a southern Chinese city today as some media had reported, a court official said.

"It is fake information", a court official told reporters outside the People's Intermediate Court building in Guiyang, the capital of Guizhou province.

"It is definitely not happening today", said the official, who did not give her name.

Once a contender for China's top leadership, Bo was ousted from his post as Communist Party chief in the south-western city of Chongqing last year following his wife's murder of a British businessman.
