LONDON (AP) — The U.K. will help the international mission to destroy Syria's chemical weapons program, officials said Friday, joining a complex operation with prominent roles for the U.S., Denmark and Norway.
Rupert Murdoch's publishing group News Corp. said Friday it had acquired the "social news agency" Storyful, which seeks to merge journalism with social media. US-based News Corp. will pay $25 million for the Irish-based start-up, according to a statement. The firm acquires and distributes video and user-generated content to its partners, and provides social media dashboards, analytics and other tools to news organizations to help improve their news and advertising efforts online and on mobile platforms. Storyful, which has been a partner with the News Corp-owned Wall Street Journal, will continue to operate as a stand alone unit from its Dublin headquarters and work with media clients.
