Chinese Communist Party warns corruption 'serious'

China's ruling Communist Party, reeling from a corruption epidemic that has seen senior party chiefs jailed around the country, warned Monday that the fight against graft was a long way from being solved.
The warning comes a day after state media said the top party official in the booming eastern province of Shandong was dismissed for misconduct, which follows earlier high-profile firings of party bosses in Beijing and Shanghai.
Xinhua News Agency said the Politburo of the Communist Party of China Central Committee had warned all CPC members that "the phenomenon of corruption is still quite serious."
It said the Politburo meeting, presided over by Hu Jintao, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee and also China's president, "pledged to continue the major task of fighting corruption and achieving clean governance."
