The arrest blows away the hopes of an easing of Sino-U.S. trade tensions and rocking global stock markets. The shock arrest of Meng Wanzhou, who is also Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's chief financial officer, raises fresh doubts over a 90-day truce on trade struck between Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping on Saturday - the day she was detained. The arrest is related to violations of U.S. sanctions, a person familiar with the matter said. Reuters was unable to determine the precise nature of the violations.

Ever since Edward Snowden's revelations about the U.S. government's far-reaching spying capabilities -- especially when it came to prying into our mobile devices -- many people have been insecure about their smartphone's security. In response to those concerns and criticisms that the tech industry cooperated with the government's surveillance needs, Apple and Google recently announced that they will automatically encrypt data on smartphones running their latest software. That drew praise from privacy advocates and condemnation from the highest ranks of U.S. law enforcement, who asserted that these new security features will make it harder for them to investigate crimes.
