BEIJING (REUTERS) - At least 18 more people have been detained in China in connection with a corruption scandal involving British drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), state media reported, giving more details on a probe which has rocked the company.
State radio reported late on Friday on its website that police in the central city of Zhengzhou had "recently held, in accordance with the law, 18 GlaxoSmithKline (China) employees and some medical personnel".
It provided no details of the detentions.
The Zhengzhou police news department, reached by telephone, said they were "unaware of the situation" and declined to comment further.
