MOSCOW - Russian law enforcement authorities have detained 74 Chinese labor workers who allegedly have no identity documents in the Volgograd region, said the Interior Ministry of Russia Thursday.

The workers, who are incapable of speaking Russian, were said to have been employed by a farm in the Nikolayevski district since last winter. They have been transferred into custody under the control of the Interior Ministry's local branch in Volgograd. Relevant authorities have decided to extradite them, said the ministry in an on-line statement.

Officials of Chinese Embassy in Russia who have been informed about the incident are heading to the region for further negotiations.
