China said Tuesday that it was very concerned about the current situation in Libya, vowing to protect its nationals and firms in the country.

"China hopes the country can restore social stability and political order as soon as possible," said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu at a regular news briefing.

Since the unrest erupted in Libya on Feb. 16, people have been attacked and there has been vandalism, looting and arson, said Ma, adding that Chinese firms had been attacked and Chinese nationals injured.

Latest reports said a construction site run by Huafeng Construction Co., Ltd. from China's Zhejiang Province was looted by a group of armed gangsters Sunday afternoon in the eastern city of Agedabia, and nearly 1,000 Chinese workers there were forced from their on site living quarters and had become homeless.
