China’s former president unexpectedly escorted out of party congress

China’s former president Hu Jintao has been unexpectedly escorted out of the closing ceremony of the ruling Communist Party.

The 79-year-old, who was seated on the left of President Xi Jinping, was led off the stage of the main auditorium of the Great Hall of the People in Beijing by two stewards.

He appeared to resist leaving, turning back to his seat at one point.
