Prosecutors haven't filed a formal charge against Ferris or Hicks, and the men are scheduled for a May 13 arraignment. Ferris said he had been wearing the vest when he asked Hicks to shoot him with a.22-caliber semi-automatic rifle.

"We're excited to bring the WhatsApp Business app to even more small businesses and hear new stories about how it's helping them succeed", said WhatsApp. The app, which started popping up on App Store in select markets last month, is now officially available in a total of seven countries, namely India, Brazil, Germany, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and the US.

As part of its move to make money from WhatsApp, the company had said in August that it would start charging businesses for sending marketing and customer service messages at a fixed rate for confirmed delivery, ranging from 0.5 cents to 9 cents per message depending on the country. The Facebook-owned messaging app is expanding with the WhatsApp Business app for iOS users, according to a Thursday blog post. The app will roll out worldwide over the next few weeks.
