BEIJING (Reuters) - Another senior Chinese military officer has been detained on suspicion of corruption, state media said in Friday, as the country continues a sweeping campaign to stamp out graft in its armed forces.

The official Xinhua news agency and the ruling Communist Party's People's Daily said Major General Liu Hongjie, who held a top logistical support position, had been placed under "coercive measures", which generally means detention.
