Stranded Nepalese in Libya reaching Egypt border
 

Kathmandu, Feb 24 -Nepali nationals were reaching the border of Egypt from Darna of strife-torn Libya under a rescue effort coordinated by Nepals envoy in Cairo, a Foreign Ministry official said here Thursday.

Tirtharaj Aryal of the Nepali Mission in Egypt coordinated with some 562 Nepalese as they came out of Libya, Harish Chandra Ghimire of the Foreign Ministry said.

Nepal had asked the Egyptian government to provide food, lodging and security to Nepali people stranded there, he said.

Around 5,000 Nepalese were living at risk in Libya, a rights group said.

Human Rights Organization of Nepal asked the government to be proactive in rescuing Nepali workers stranded Libya following anti-establishment protests in that country.

In a press release, it stated family members and relatives of Nepali workers were seeking help from HURON.

Tens of thousands of foreigners sought to flee the turmoil in Libya, media reports said.
