Islamic State claims it killed two Chinese in Pakistan

  |   World News / India News

Islamic State says it has killed two Chinese nationals who were abducted from south-west Pakistan by armed men in late May. The IS-linked Amaq news agency made the claim in an Arabic statement on the Telegram messaging app.

China's foreign ministry said it was "gravely concerned" and working to verify the information. The pair are said to have been studying Urdu at a language centre in the city of Quetta when they were abducted.

At the time, neither IS nor any other militant group said they had kidnapped the pair. Balochistan has seen kidnappings of foreign nationals in recent years by armed Islamist or separatist groups, sometimes for a ransom.
