Eight Chinese hostages have been released unharmed in Iraq. They have been held by a group called the al-Numan Battalion. This apparently is an Islamic fundamentalist group.
Iraqi insurgents who were holding eight Chinese labourers hostage in Iraq have released the men.

China's official Xinhua news agency quoted the Chinese embassy in Baghdad as confirming their release.

The militant group holding the men had threatened to kill them if China failed to clarify its position on Iraq.

It reportedly said in a videotape that the hostages were being freed after China said it had advised its citizens not to travel to Iraq.

According to the Associated Press news agency, the tape showed each of the Chinese men shaking hands with a masked insurgent.

Its great news that these eight people have been released unharmed.
The Chinese government have denied that the eight were there helping the US. Why else would they be there? Of course any country who are helping to rebuild Iraq are indirectly helping the US and all of the coalition countries.
