Bo Xilai scandal: China president 'was wire-tapped'

Bo Xilai ran a wire-tapping system that extended as far as China's president, the New York Times has reported.

Citing "nearly a dozen people with party ties", it said the disgraced Mr Bo ran a wire-tapping network across Chongqing, where he was party chief.

His officials even listened to a phone call involving Hu Jintao, it said.
