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.
