A former Canadian diplomat has reportedly been detained in China and his current employer says it is working for his "prompt and safe release".
The International Crisis Group said it was "aware of reports" of Michael Kovrig's detention.
Details are not yet clear. The news comes days after Canadian authorities arrested a top executive of the Chinese telecoms giant Huawei in Vancouver.
It is not known if there is a link between the two cases.
I have absolutely zero faith that Justin Trudeau and the Canadian government will come out of this ahead.
