NEW YORK (AP) — The bodies of all eight people reported missing after a deadly gas explosion destroyed two buildings have been recovered, the fire commissioner said Friday, but workers are treating the scene as a rescue operation in case there are unknown survivors in the rubble.
Weibo, the Chinese microblogging service often compared with Twitter, filed Friday for a US stock offering seeking to raise $500 million. The move will allow the popular Chinese-language social network to spin off from the Internet giant Sina, according to documents filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. The filing said Weibo had 129.1 million monthly active users in December and 61.4 million average daily active users. "A microcosm of Chinese society, Weibo has attracted a wide range of users, including ordinary people, celebrities and other public figures, as well as organizations such as media outlets, businesses, government agencies and charities," the SEC filing said.
