FILE - In this Jan. 17, 2007 file photo, Bo Xilai, then China's Minister of Commerce, attends a memorial ceremony for his father Bo Yibo, a late communist leader considered one of communist China's founding fathers, in front of the father's photo at a military hospital in Beijing. Disgraced Chinese politician Bo was expelled from the ruling Communist Party on Friday, Sept. 28, 2012, and will face corruption and other criminal charges, the latest step in a scandal that has overshadowed a political transition now set to take place in early November.
