BEIJING (REUTERS) - The director of China's National Energy Administration has been removed from his position, the country's Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security said on Friday (Oct 12).

Mr Nur Bekri, who was appointed to the agency's top post in late 2014, is under investigation for "suspected serious disciplinary and legal violations", the ruling Communist Party's anti-corruption watchdog said last month.
