Shanghai police have demanded a $36m (€30m) 'corporate ransom' from Irish executive Richard O'Halloran to allow him to return home.

O'Halloran has been barred from leaving China for almost two years after being caught up in a legal row involving the Chinese shareholder of a Dublin aviation-leasing firm he works for.
