An investor is reflected on an electronic board showing stock information at a brokerage house in ShanghaiBEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China froze share offers and set up a market-stabilization fund on Saturday, the Wall Street Journal said, as Beijing intensified efforts to pull stock markets out of a nose-drive that is threatening the world's second-largest economy. Beijing's reported suspension of initial public offers (IPOs) came a few hours after extraordinary announcements by major brokers and fund managers, which collectively pledged to invest at least $19 billion of their own money into stocks.

"The president has declared a state of emergency in Tunisia and will address the nation at 5 pm (1600 GMT)," Essebsi's office said, adding that it would be implemented for a renewable 30-day period.
