Three local officials are being investigated by prosecutors for alleged corruption, the Supreme People's Procuratorate said on Monday.

Li Liangsen, former standing committee member of Lyuliang Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and secretary of the local political and law committee in north China's Shanxi Province, has been arrested for accepting bribes.

Other officials include Zhang Wenming, vice mayor of Huangshan City in east China's Anhui Province and former standing committee member of the CPC Huangshan Municipal Committee, who is being investigated for bribery; and Li Jia, former secretary of the CPC Ziyang Municipal Committee in southwestern province of Sichuan who faces investigation for bribery and embezzlement.

Zhang and Li were placed under "coercive measures," which, according to the Criminal Procedure Law, include summons by force, bail, residential surveillance, detention and arrest.
