A Chinese policeman blocks photos being taken outside Zhongnanhai which serves as the central headquarters for the Communist Party of China after the sacking of politician Bo Xilai from the countries powerful Politburo, in Beijing on April 11, 2012. Once a rising political star known for busting gangs and reviving Maoist ideals, China's Bo Xilai has suffered a dramatic fall from grace that now sees him linked to a suspected murder. The 62-year-old was once a leading contender to enter the top rungs of power, but in a stunning reversal of fortune he was sacked as head of Chongqing city and late Tuesday suspended from the Communist Party's powerful Politburo.
