When I use XML document with namespace definitions, I can't get attributes of nodes

Reproduce code:
$xml_file = 'test.xml';
$xml = simplexml_load_file($xml_file);
foreach($xml->Worksheet->attributes() as $a => $b) {
    echo $a,'="',$b,"\"\n";

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<Workbook xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:spreadsheet"
 <Worksheet ss:Name="English">

Expected result:

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

You need to take care of the namespaces.
