Police in China have arrested 10 people on charges of copying and distributing naked photos of Hong Kong actor EDISON CHAN with a series of singers and actresses. The suspects were picked up in the southern city of Shenzen. The explicit pictures, which were reportedly stored on Infernal Affairs star Chan's computer, were recently stolen and leaked on popular Chinese internet search engine Baidu. Among those affected by the scandal is clean-cut Hong Kong pop star Gillian Chong, who last week (ends15Feb08) apologised for photos showing her and Chen in bed together. Pornography is illegal in China, where authorities also monitor the web.
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The film will be the first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe led by a person of colour.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
