Chinese student wrongfully detained in Iraq for “terror links”

A Chinese citizen has been wrongfully detained in Iraq, as reports say he was suspected to have links to the ISIS terror group.

The man, Liu Wei, was confirmed to be an archaeological student from Peking University, one of China’s most prestigious universities.

Reports say he had gone to Iraq to visit historical sites, but was mistakenly thought as a terrorist.

Iraqi authorities say the man is safe, and would be set free within days, as government offices are closed due to Ramadan and the Eid festival.
