Ten people have been put on trial across the weekend in the Chinese northern province of Hebei, accused of producing, selling or adding protein powder that contained melamine to raw milk.

Six went on trial Friday, with another four Monday in Shijiazhuang, capital of Hebei and headquarters of the Sanlu Group, the company at the heart of the scandal, Xinhua news agency said.

Sanlu was closed in September and went into bankruptcy last week.
