China questioning 5 more oil executives: Report
BEIJING (AP) - A Chinese business newspaper says anti-corruption investigators are questioning five more executives of state-owned oil companies as a probe of the industry expands.
China Business News said on Monday the executives were taken in by investigators last week. Citing an unidentified industry source, it said it was not clear whether they were suspects.
The newspaper said the executives work for China's biggest oil producer, state-owned China National Petroleum Corp.; its subsidiary, PetroChina Ltd.; and affiliated companies.
CNPC is the target of a sweeping anti-graft investigation that has netted five current or former executives. One of them, a former CNPC chairman, was fired last week as head of the government commission that oversees China's biggest state-owned companies.
