Questions in China over Briton murder probe

Disgraced politician's wife named as suspect in murder inquiry into well-connected businessman's death.

    British businessman Neil Heywood's death in China last year has placed him posthumously at the centre of a Chinese political scandal after the wife of a disgraced politician was named as a suspect in a murder investigation into his possible killing.

    Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports from London on what led Heywood to China and how he became embroiled in an investigation that some say has destroyed the reputation of Bo Xilai, a man once tipped as a future leaderof the People's Republic.
