GUANGZHOU -- Chinese authorities have launched an investigation into FedEx for diverting Huawei Technologies' packages to the U.S. without notifying the Chinese company, the state-run Xinhua News Agency reported Saturday, possibly opening a new front in the trade war.

The U.S. company failed to deliver the packages to designated addresses in China, "seriously damaging the lawful rights and interests of clients and violating laws and regulations governing the express industry in China," Xinhua said.
