China Mobile Cites Investigation Of Executive's Personal Conduct

China Mobile Ltd. said Vice Chairman Zhang Chunjiang is being investigated by officials for alleged breach of conduct related to personal reasons, the latest probe into alleged wrongdoing by an executive to roil the country’s massive state sector.
