Citroen C1 - cam belt or timing chain?

Does the Citreon C1 (2009 model) have timing chains or belts?

The Citroen C1 (built from 2005 - 2014) 1.4 diesel uses a timing belt that should be replaced every five years or 60,000 miles (whichever comes first).

1.0-litre petrol uses a timing chain. It should last the life of the car, as long as the oil is changed regularly (again, every 12 months or 12,000 miles).
