A group of 192 Chinese workers and engineers who had been trapped in flood-hit Pakistan are back at home.

A charter flight took them to Urumqi, in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. After a brief stay, they will fly to their home towns in Henan, Shandong and Sichuan provinces.

A total of 268 Chinese workers at a hydro-power station project in a northwest province of Pakistan were trapped on a mountain as a huge landslide hit their work site on July 29th. 265 were safely evacuated, but three workers were missing. Fourteen Chinese engineers stayed behind to take care of the flood-ravaged project and 59 workers are still awaiting other travel arrangements in Islamabad.
