Beijing residents react to Wang Lijun sentencing

The ex-police chief at the heart of China's biggest political scandal in years has been sentenced to 15 years in jail.

Wang Lijun was jailed for ''bending the law for selfish ends, defection, abuse of power and bribetaking", Xinhua said.

Wang's unorthodox policing methods won him popularity during his tough anti-corruption crackdown in the city of Chongqing.

However, residents in Beijing were split over the sentencing.
