(Reuters) – European stocks rose on Thursday as a rebound in travel stocks and overnight strength in Wall Street helped offset concerns about China’s slowing economy that dragged down miners.

The pan-European index rose 0.6% by 0717 GMT, bouncing off a six-week closing low hit in the previous session. Travel & leisure added 1.6%, while automakers rose 1.2%.

Miners including Rio Tinto (NYSE:), Anglo American (LON:) and BHP Group (NYSE:) were among the top drags as metal prices fell after China reiterated plans to release more metals from its reserves. [MET/L]

German car supplier Continental AG, (OTC:), fell 11.7% below the STOXX 600 bottom line following the spinoff of Vitesco.

Utilities saw a 0.2% increase, despite concerns about measures to lower energy costs in Spain and other countries. On Wednesday, the index dropped almost 3%.
