CHINA-POLITICS-CORRUPTION-CHONGQING-BO XILAI

This photo taken on February 4, 2013 shows a taxi passing by 'I Love You' signs on a road crossing outside a hotel in the Nan'an district which was an area politically loyal to Bo Xilai and one of the two hotels where murdered British businessman Neil Heywood stayed at during his last week alive in Chongqing. Chinese state media has reported that Chongqing under the leadership of disgraced leader Bo Xilai raked up huge debts over his popularist transport infrastructure, social housing and construction projects. The reconstruction of the city of 32 million people however made Bo a popular figure amongst locals and made the Yangtze River city one of the world's fastest-growing urban areas.
