Chinese Police Probe Gun in FedEx Package

BEIJING Ė Chinese police are investigating the presence of a gun in a package shipped to China from the US and handled by FedEx Corp. from the US, state media said, the latest scrutiny directed at the American shipping company by Chinese authorities.

The package was sent by a US client to a sports-gear company in Chinaís southern Fujian province, the government-run Xinhua News Agency reported Sunday, citing police in the city of Fuzhou, the provincial capital.

Fuzhou police launched the probe after receiving a report and confiscated the gun, Xinhua said. The agency didnít name the client who sent the package or the recipient company.

Chinese law prohibits the delivery of firearms, and bringing firearms into the country requires a number of permits, including from public-security and customs authorities.

FedEx didnít immediately respond to a request for comment.

Chinese authorities are already investigating FedEx over the alleged mishandling of packages destined for Chinese telecom gear-maker Huawei Technologies Co.

The US delivery giant has apologized over that issue, which occurred in May, and said it is cooperating with authorities in that probe.
