Ten provinces and cities have been listed in the next round of the Chinese government's anti-corruption inspection.

Inspectors will be sent out to look over works of local governments and officials.

Three organizations and enterprises are also on the list, including the General Administration of Sport, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the First Automobile Works.

The coming inspections are said to be focusing on "Naked officials," a term referring to officials whose family members are all living abroad.

All 14 reports from the last round of inspections were released earlier this week.

The reports pointed out problems involving local officials and departments including misconduct in land transfer and construction projects, as well as the appointment and promotion of local officials.

In the first five months of the year, 63-thousand officials were sanctioned, up 34.7 percent over the same period last year.

For more on China's anti-corruption campaign, CRI's Zheng Chenguang earlier spoke to Victor Gao, current affairs commentator.
