An employee works at a logistic center in HuaibeiBy Pete Sweeney SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Hours after China's central bank cut interest rates to battle slowing growth and rising deflationary risk, an official survey showed on Sunday that activity in China's factory sector contracted for a second straight month in February.

MIXED NEWS IS BAD NEWS From the breakdown of factory data, economic performance is uncertain.
