April 13, 2004 10:02 IST

Seven Chinese abducted in Iraq have been released and are now safe in a temporary residence in Baghdad, the Chinese foreign ministry said on Tuesday.

The Chinese were released late Monday night and their health and spiritual conditions are generally stable, a foreign ministry spokesman said.

After the seven, who were abducted by armed men in Fallujah on Sunday, arrived in the temporary residence, Sun Bigan, head of the team responsible for the re-establishment of the Chinese embassy in Baghdad, conveyed cares from Chinese president Hu Jintao and other leaders to all of them, the spokesman said.
