HEFEI -- The former vice mayor of Anqing city in East China's Anhui province stood trial Wednesday on charges of taking bribes.

The Intermediate People's Court of Bozhou opened the trial of Fan Xianhan on charges of allegedly taking 1.8 million yuan ($260,700) of bribes, and receiving gifts worth 4.68 million yuan.
