Ex-finance minister in Romania placed under house arrest

[Watch] A former finance minister in Romania has been placed under house arrest as part of a probe into claims of corruption.

MPs voted to allow the arrest of Darius Valcov two days ago.

But in a controversial move, parliament blocked the detention of another ex-minister, Dan Sova.

Both men deny any wrongdoing.
