WASHINGTON/SAN FRANCISCO (Financial Times) -- The U.S. has put China's Academy of Military Medical Sciences and 11 affiliated biotechnology research institutes on an export blacklist for allegedly helping the Chinese military to develop "brain-control" weapons.

The U.S. Commerce Department on Thursday put the research institutes on the "entity list," which bars U.S. companies from exporting technology that originated in America to the Chinese institutions.
