Twenty nine Indians, rescued from strife-torn Libya, landed in the Kochi international airport on Thursday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised their safe return on Wednesday in a Kerala BJP rally at Tripunithura, a suburb in Kochi.

“I have some good news for you. Six families from Kerala and three Tamil Nadu residents, who were stranded in Libya, will return home safely tomorrow or day after. In total 29 persons have been rescued,” he said.

Several of those evacuated were working in Zawiya Hospital in Libya’s Sabratha city.

After the death of a Kerala nurse and her son in shelling at their house in Sabratha in March, relatives of Keralites working in Libya had been demanding their quick evacuation.
