The People's Bank of China reduced its one year interest rate by 0.25%, marking the third time in the last six months that the central bank has cut benchmark rates...

A person familiar with the matter reportedly told the Wall Street Journal that the Chinese e-commerce giant is not pursuing an outright acquisition of the U.S. company, however...
