US, China face off again at World Trade Organization
GENEVA (AP) - China and the United States have traded barbs again at the World Trade Organization, with the U.S. ambassador accusing China of theft of technology and an envoy from Beijing retorting that the U.S. was "finger-pointing."

Wednesday marked the second and final closed-door session on the U.S. after a first one on Monday.
