TORONTO (Reuters) – The two Canadians who were detained by Beijing for more than 1000 days returned home on Saturday, local media reported, where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau received them.

CTV captured Trudeau greeting Michael Spavor, a businessman and Michael Kovrig as they arrived at Calgary in western Canada.

Prime Minister’s Office declined to comment immediately.

Trudeau, the Prime Minister’s Office, told reporters that both Canadians left Chinese airspace on Friday night, just after Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzzhou flew from Canada to end her extradition hearing.
