Thiruvananthapuram: UAE-based Indian businessman BR Shetty has offered the 46 nurses freed by insurgents in Iraq jobs in hospitals he owns across the Gulf country, Nepal, Bhutan and India.

Shetty announced his offer in advertisements in Kerala newspapers.
He asked the nurses, who returned from Iraq Saturday, to contact his office if interested.
