(AFP) A FedEx pilot was arrested in China and released on bail, the company said Thursday, amid an ongoing row with Beijing over the US firm's delivery irregularities involving telecoms giant Huawei.

Todd Hohn, a former US Air Force pilot, was arrested by Chinese authorities a week ago as he waited for a commercial flight in the company's Asia hub of Guangzhou, after making a round of deliveries.

After the arrest, authorities searched his luggage where they found air gun pellets, a source close to the matter told AFP.

"Chinese authorities in Guangzhou detained and later released one of our pilots on bail after an item was found in his luggage prior to a commercial flight," a FedEx spokeswoman told AFP, confirming information first published in the Wall Street Journal.

Chinese authorities have opened a criminal investigation, according to the paper.

FedEx is facing multiple investigations in China, where it has come under fire for delivery irregularities related to Huawei.

In May, FedEx apologized for "misrouting" what it said was a "small number" of Huawei packages.

Huawei said at the time it would review its ties with the courier service over the incident.

A Chinese government probe launched in June accused FedEx of holding up more than 100 packages from Huawei.

The row comes as Beijing and Washington face off in a trade war in which both sides have exchanged steep tariffs on hundreds of billions of exports.

Huawei is also facing moves by the United States to blacklist the Chinese tech firm, cutting it off from American-made components it needs for products.

An unwise move on FedEx's part choosing to be a button man in the US campaign against China.

Making a rod for their own back.  
Believe it or not, it's true.

So once again, China arrests somebody without evidence and without charges. Smooth move Ex-Lax.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

Thorough investigation must be carried to ensure no stone is left unturned!
US President Trump pressed further foreign investigation on son of former US Vice Presient Biden. This will be good to see the house is exhibiting its dark and ugly secrets under the sun.

Under which stone did you crawl out. The evidence was in his checked luggage.

You call plastic BB's 'evidence'?

Better start arresting all of the children running around with plastic pellet guns.
