Chinese execute corrupt bureaucrat

JINAN: Li Peiying, former chief of the Capital Airports Holding Company (CAH) who was convicted of taking bribes and embezzlement, was executed Friday in Jinan, capital of east China's Shandong Province, according to the Supreme People's Court.

The execution came one month after the Shandong Provincial Higher People's Court upheld the death sentence against Li's appeal. The supreme court had reviewed the sentence.
