SHANGHAI -- Chinese authorities on Saturday decided to fine Alibaba Group 18.2 billion yuan ($2.77 billion). The authorities say Alibaba broke the country's antitrust laws as it urged clients and suppliers not to trade with its rivals. The penalty is the largest antitrust penalty in China and is likely to deal a blow to Alibaba.
