BEIJING - Over 290 Chinese nationals affected in Vietnam's anti-China riots arrived in the southwestern Chinese city of Chengdu on Sunday afternoon, according to a Chinese Foreign Ministry press release.

The ministry said they were sent back by two chartered planes of China Southern Airlines organized by the Chinese government. Over 100 of them were injured in the recent deadly violence against foreign businesses and citizens including the staff of China Metallurgical Group Corporation.

The Chinese government interagency working group and the Chinese embassy in Vietnam provided assistance for the Chinese nationals to return home.
