    High-profile Chinese politician Bo Xilai has denied the first of the allegations made against him by the government as he goes on trial for bribery, embezzlement and abuse of power.

    Bo entered the courthouse under police escort in the eastern city of Jinan on Thursday, court officials said, in closely choreographed proceedings held under tight security.
