China premier demands more anti-graft efforts

BEIJING (AP) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao is demanding tougher anti-corruption efforts amid the country's biggest political scandal in years.
An essay by Wen published Monday in the Communist Party's main theoretical journal says greater determination and more effective anti-corruption tools are needed. He wrote the ruling party risks losing the public's faith if it fails to act.
The message was little different from previous calls to fight corruption, but comes amid a nationwide drive to support the party's decision to fire Bo Xilai, one of its leading members, and launch an investigation into what are described as serious breaches in discipline. Bo's wife is also being investigated over the murder of a British businessman.
