Ten migrant workers from Changde, Hunan province, who were lured to Mongolia to work as gold miners returned to Hunan on Sunday, Xinhua News Agency reported.

One of the workers sought help on the Changde government website on June 6, saying in a post there that they had been tricked by a labor contractor to work for a Shandong company mining in Mongolia. When they arrived, the boss would not sign a contract with them and they learned they could not legally work with their visas.

"We demanded to go back, but the boss took our passports," the man wrote, asking for help. After the Changde trade union provide legal assistance and solicited help from the Mongolian embassy in China, the company let them go.
