A quick guide to the US-China trade war Image copyright Getty Images Image caption The US is the biggest export market for Chinese goods The world's two largest economies - the US and China - are locked in an escalating trade battle.
US President Donald Trump had been complaining about China's trading practices even before he took office in 2016.
That year he said China engaged in the "rape" of the US economy, and since then he has aggressively targeted Beijing as part of his broader America First agenda.
In 2017, the US launched an investigation into Chinese trade policies and has steadily imposed tariffs on Chinese products from this year.
What tariffs are in place? So far, the US has imposed three rounds of tariffs on Chinese goods, totalling more than $250bn (£191.9bn). They cover a wide range of consumer and industrial items including handbags, rice and railway equipment.
The duties range from 10% to 25%. Mr Trump has since threatened to hit another $267bn worth of g..
Magnum China: Panoramic portrait of a global superpower Image copyright Martin Parr / Magnum Photos Photographers at Magnum Photos have had a long-standing cultural engagement and fascination with China.
Co-founders Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson first covered the country on photography assignments in the 1930s and 40s, marking the beginning of a relationship with the country that has continued throughout the decades.
Magnum's photos provide a panoramic portrait of China and its people through the changes and upheavals in its recent history.

Why India needs to worry about climate change Image copyright AFP Image caption Some Indian cities often record temperatures approaching nearly 50C A report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has warned of disastrous consequences if current trends of global warming are not reversed immediately. Aayushi Awasthy explains why this has particular consequences for India and the entire South Asian region.
The IPCC report, which was released earlier this month, has been called the most extensive warning yet on the risks of rising global temperatures.
The report says that the impact of a 1.5C increase in global temperatures will "disproportionately affect disadvantaged and vulnerable populations through food insecurity, higher food prices, income losses, lost livelihood opportunities, adverse health impacts, and population displacements".
India stands to be one of the nations most significantly affected, given its huge population and levels of inequality and poverty.
Ko Ko Korina: A bad cover version, the angry minister and Spiderman too Image Copyright Coke Studio Coke Studio Report There are a lot of bad cover versions of songs but few have caused the kind of uproar seen in Pakistan this week, drawing in a government minister, a pop sweetheart and even Spiderman.
Last week the hugely popular live music TV show Coke Studio reworked a beloved classic Ko Ko Korina, considered the first true pop song in Pakistan.
The video was posted on YouTube and it was at that point we all found out how angry this had made people. Rage usually reserved only for religion, politics and cricket came down upon the Ko Ko Korina cover - with a vengeance.
Things became truly surreal when Pakistan's Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari weighed in to describe it as a "massacre" of the classic song, questioning how producers had allowed this to happen.
