Thirty-two evacuated families from Libya to reach Kerala today
Thiruvananthapuram: Twenty-nine people belonging to six families from Kerala and three from Tamil Nadu will reach Kerala on Thursday after evacuation from Libya, a senior official said.
“These families will travel from Tripoli to Istanbul and will land in Kochi via Dubai at 8.30am on Thursday,” he added.
After the death of a Kerala nurse and her son in shelling at their house in Sabratha in March, relatives of those working in Libya had been demanding evacuation.
The Kerala government has appreciated support from external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj’s office for the evacuation operation.
