BEIJING - China's Foreign Ministry on Friday reminded citizens to avoid going to danger zones such as Syria, following reports that a young Chinese man had traveled there to fight with a Kurdish group against Islamic State.

Pan Yang, from a farming family from a mountainous area in the southern province of Sichuan, went to Syria around September and ended up fighting with a Kurdish militia, media reports have said.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said the ministry had seen the reports but she had no knowledge of his situation.
