A third Canadian citizen has been detained in China, Canada's National Post newspaper reported on Wednesday, citing the Canadian foreign ministry.

At a daily news briefing in Beijing, China's foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said she was unaware of the report.

Two Canadians - former diplomat Michael Kovrig and businessman Michael Spavor - were detained after Canadian police arrested Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, on Dec 1.
