FILE - In this March 26, 2013 file photo, a worker demonstrates martial arts during an open day at the Alibaba Group office in Hangzhou in east China's Zhejiang province. For years, Alibaba faced complaints it failed to stamp out sales of counterfeit goods on its e-commerce websites. But Chinese regulators stayed silent, apparently reluctant to disrupt the rise of an Internet star even as they accused foreign automakers, dairies and others of violating anti-monopoly or consumer protection rules. That honeymoon ended this week, the last week of January 2015. In a stinging report, a Cabinet agency accused Alibaba Group Ltd. of allowing sales of fake goods and hurting consumers.

This Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015 photo, shows a bridge destroyed by Islamic State militants near the Shadoukhah frontline to slow advance of Kurdish Forces in Ninevah province, northern Iraq. The Iraqi Kurdish fighters retaking territory from Islamic State militants have found surprising ambivalence in areas they free from the jihadis’ oppressive rule. Locals have swiftly shaken off the imposed Islamic lifestyle _ but as Sunnis, from the same ethnic group as the militants, many are bracing for treatment as collaborators nonetheless. An AP team traveling with the Kurds found the road to Mosul, a coveted prize in the battle for Iraq, strewn with suspicion and fear. (AP Photo/Vivian Salama)
