China has taken 160,000 "phantom" government staff off its official payroll who were receiving salaries despite not doing any work.

A total of 162 thousand 629 officials who were taking government wages without working have been removed in a nationwide campaign over the last year.

The province of Hebei in northern China saw the largest number of such officials, with nearly 56,000 identified.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has launched a high-profile campaign against rampant corruption and misuse of government funds, in the face of widespread public anger.
