TAIPEI -- Washington has blacklisted more than 20% of Huawei Technologies' global R&D and innovation centers in its latest crackdown on the Chinese tech giant, striking at the heart of the company's ability to innovate.

At least 11 of Huawei's key research facilities, including sites in the U.K. and Italy, were named on a new list of 46 affiliates with which U.S. companies cannot trade unless they have Washington's approval.
