It's good news and a great relief that all the Chinese workers held by Egyptian locals are freed unharmed. Finally, good sense prevails. The Chinese workers are just innocent people doing their jobs to earn a living. I salute to all the parties involved in getting the Chinese workers freed. Without their untiring efforts, this would not have happened so soon.
