China's state-run mainstream media is more tightly controlled than the Internet by the ruling communist government, and newspapers as well as television news and the Internet have all blocked news about a graft probe in Namibia involving a firm linked to the son of President Hu Jintao. Two Namibians and a Chinese national were arrested last week in Namibia as part of a probe into bribery allegations involving Nuctech, a company headed until last year by Hu's 38-year-old son, Hu Haifeng.
