China still verifying report on kidnapping of citizen: FM spokesman

BEIJING, Sept. 10 (Xinhua) -- China is verifying a media report which claimed a Chinese national was captured by the Islamic State (IS), a Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Thursday.

The IS claimed earlier its militants had captured a Chinese consultant and a Norwegian man, according to the group's official online magazine.

"We have noticed the report," spokesman Hong Lei said at a daily news briefing, adding that China is working to verify the situation.

"The Chinese government strongly opposes any violence against innocent civilians," Hong said.
