BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s biggest ride-sharing company Didi Chuxing said on Friday it would halt its business in China for one week following the death of a passenger that has raised questions about safety.

The company said it would halt its ride-sharing business from Saturday nationwide, and would start checks on all of its drivers.

A female passenger was killed in Zhengzhou city last week and the company apologized amid a public outcry.
