China's one-child policy

Chinese authorities said Thursday they have fined the country's best-known film director Zhang Yimou 7.5 million yuan ($1.2 million) for violating the one-child policy.

After months of rumours that he had fathered as many as seven children with several different women, Zhang -- who already has a daughter with his ex-wife -- acknowledged in December that he has two sons and another daughter with his current wife -- all born before they got married. (AFP)
