Special report: Deadliest U.S. college massacre

    BEIJING, April 18 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao Wednesday criticized some U.S. media's irresponsible reports on the Virginia Tech shooting before finding out the truth, calling on relevant sides to eliminate baneful impact of the incident.

    Following Monday's shooting tragedy at Virginia Tech, some U.S. media reported the gunman was a Chinese student. Later, the U.S. police identified the gunman who killed 32 people as a student from the Republic of Korea, Cho Seung-Hui.

    Calling the mass shooting a "very serious" incident, Liu said it was a terribly wrong move to give irresponsible reports before finding out the truth, which had violated the professional moral of the press.

    The Chinese government and people are very concerned about this incident and lamented the deaths, the spokesman said, adding China expresses sincere sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims as well as the injured, hoping they will recover at an early date.

    Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing conveyed condolences to U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice over the shooting in a telegram Tuesday, expressing sincere concern to the U.S. government and those affected by the shooting.

    Monday's shooting rampage is the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S. history. Liu Jianchao said on Tuesday evening China is "shocked" by the tragedy and strongly condemns the violence.
