[SHANGHAI] More than 200 Chinese-listed firms said on Tuesday they would halt trading in their shares, state media reported, joining the scores of companies seeking to shield themselves from China's plunging stock markets.

The Securities Times, a paper published by the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, also said its calculations showed some 560 companies - or 23 percent - of the 2,808 A-share listed firms on the Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Exchanges had suspended trading in the past week.
