Bo Xilai denies one charge of corruption against him

Ousted Chinese politician Bo Xilai has denied one of the corruption charges against him at a court in eastern China.

A court blog cited him as saying that he never received a bribe from Tang Xiaolin, the general manager of Hong Kong-based export company Dalian International Development Ltd.

He also stands accused of receiving about 21.8 million yuan (£2.3 million) in bribes from Xu Ming, a plastics-to-property entrepreneur who is a close friend.
