Interpol chief vanishes on China trip

France has opened an investigation into what’s being called the “worrying disappearance” of the Chinese head of Interpol, Meng Hongwei. He left the organisation’s headquarters in Lyon for a trip back to China a week ago, but his family haven’t heard from him since. One Hong Kong-based newspaper claimed Mr Meng had been “taken away” for questioning, but there’s no word on why he might have been held.
