Chinese left confused by report on Xi's wedding ring
BEIJING (REUTERS) - Chinese Internet users have been left scratching their heads after state media issued a report on Saturday denying a story about President Xi Jinping wearing a wedding ring during the G20 summit in Russia.
The official Xinhua news agency put out a one-line report stating: "Talk on the Internet about Xi Jinping wearing a wedding ring at the G20 summit is fake information."
It provided no further explanation.
The denial comes as China embarks on yet another crackdown on what it terms "online rumours", as the control-obsessed government tries once again to rein in social media.
