Kathmandu: Nepal has began evacuating its
nationals stranded in troubled Libya with a batch of 62 people
returning to Kathmandu on Saturday.
They were working in Darnah in Libya where violence
had escalated following clashes between the security forces
loyal to Muammer Gaddafi and thousands of demonstrators, who
are demanding ouster of the embattled Libyan leader.
The 62 stranded labourers had returned to the nation
via Egypt and the UAE, according to officials here.
