China's biggest political event, the Communist Party congress, is set to begin in Beijing.
More than 2,000 delegates will be meeting under tight security in the capital.
The closed-door summit, which takes place once every five years, determines who rules China and the country's direction for the next term.
Xi Jinping became China's leader in 2012 and is widely expected to remain as chief of the ruling Communist Party.

The congress is expected to finish next week.
