3 of 4 Ja­panese work­ers re­leased

Los Angeles Times - - 9• 30•10 -

China re­leased three of four Ja­panese cit­i­zens whose de­ten­tion had added to re­cent ten­sions be­tween the two coun­tries, the New China News Agency said.

The agency said the fourth Ja­panese cit­i­zen, Sada Takahashi, was still be­ing held for in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The four em­ploy­ees of Fu­jita Corp. were de­tained in He­bei prov­ince on sus­pi­cion of en­ter­ing a mil­i­tar­ily re­stricted zone.

Their de­ten­tion came as Bei­jing and Tokyo were em­broiled in a dis­pute sparked by Ja­pan’s de­ten­tion of a Chi­nese boat cap­tain.
