Chinese tycoon arrested for suspected child molestation

A billionaire Chinese property tycoon was formally arrested for suspected child molestation Wednesday, state media said, in a case that has sparked anger over attempts to censor the incident.
Wang Zhenhua, the 57-year-old chairman of Seazen Holdings, was arrested by Shanghai police, reported state broadcaster CCTV, which released a video of Wang in custody.
Shanghai police said on their official Twitter-like Weibo account that prosecutors approved the arrest of a man surnamed Wang, along with a woman surnamed Zhou.
The public security agency takes a “zero tolerance attitude” towards cases involving crimes against minors, they said, and will “persist in cracking down on these types of crimes.”
