Chinese official resigns after dozing off at speech

An official in southwest China has resigned from his post after he was caught falling asleep on the job, but he has gotten some support for his plight from cyberspace, state media reported Saturday.

Jiang Wenhui stepped down as deputy director of the Chenggong County Investment Promotion Bureau of Yunnan Province on Friday following his snooze during an investment lecture on Wednesday, Xinhua news agency said.

The official, who sat in the first row, was told to wake up by a provincial leader.
