Banquet ban for Chinese top military officials
Elaborate state-funded banquets have been banned for China's top military officials, state media has reported.
The move comes after a diktat from central government earlier this month that aimed to curb extravagance and tackle corruption.
Xinhua news agency says receptions for high-ranking officers will no longer feature luxury banquets or alcohol.
