Chinese state media say disgraced politician Bo Xilai, who has been at the center of China's biggest political scandal in decades, has been kicked out of the country's Communist Party and will “face justice.”

The long-awaited announcement regarding Bo's fate was made Friday by China's official Xinhua news agency. The brief announcement said Bo, once considered a rising star in Chinese politics, has been expelled from public office.

In a separate article, Xinhua also said the 18th Party Congress, which will begin the process of transferring power to a new generation of leaders, will convene on November 8.
