The wife of the former Interpol chief being held in China on corruption charges has applied for asylum in France, her spokesperson has said.

Grace Meng was put under police protection in the central French city of Lyon soon after her husband Hongwei’s disappearance amid concerns she may be kidnapped, her lawyer Emmanuel Marsigny told the Reuters news agency.

The radio station France Info cited her as saying that strangers have followed her, received suspicious phone calls, and had her car license plates photographed by mysterious people.
