An official in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region was arrested Saturday after his incriminating diary was posted online and drew extensive attention from netizens.

Han Feng, 53, head of the sales department of Guangxi's Tobacco Monopoly Bureau, took 482,000 yuan (70,613 U.S. dollars) and a 300,000-yuan apartment from companies contracted with refurbishment and construction of his office buildings when he worked in Qinzhou and Laibin cities, Guangxi's procuratorate alleged.

Han's diary, which included sex relationships with five women, was posted online in February and spread quickly among Internet users. The procuratorate of Nanning City, capital of Guangxi, started to investigate Han, who had been suspended from post, on March 9.
