Beijing: China on Thursday termed as "groundless" a report that authorities were asking people in the restive Xinjiang region to hand in religious items including copies of the Quran and prayer rugs.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said people in Xinjiang were working and living in peace. "We hope that relevant parties should refrain from making groundless accusations and rumours," Lu said.Xinjiang, a Muslim-dominated restive province in China, is located in the northwest of the country.
