Next 10,000 Workers Ready to Return Today
The first group of 50 Thai workers evacuated from riot-plagued Libya have returned home, expressing relief to have survived the “terrifying” experience.
The evacuees arrived at Suvarnabhumi airport yesterday on board a Qatar Airways flight out of neighbouring Tunisia.
Of the group, 33 are employees of SNC Lavalin Group, a large Canadian engineering firm, which evacuated workers to Tunisia by bus.
Another 16 Thai workers were sent back to Thailand by their German employer, and another worker was evacuated by a British employer.
