Beijing: Canadian detained in China is being held for working illegally in the country, the Chinese foreign ministry said on Thursday.

The detainee, Sarah McIver, faces "administrative penalties", said Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, at a press briefing in Beijing, Chunying did not specify the penalties McIever is facing.

Canada's National Post newspaper has identified McIver as a teacher from Alberta. She is being held by a local public security bureau, according to the spokeswoman.

On December 10, former Canadian diplomat Michael Kovrig and China-based business consultant Michael Spavor were both detained and accused of engaging in activities "that endanger China's national security".

The detention of the three Canadians comes against a backdrop of escalating tensions between China and Canada, over the arrest of Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wangzhou on fraud charges filed by US related to her business dealings which allegedly flouted US sanctions against Iran.

She was released on bail last week in Vancouver.
