17 Bangladeshis among 150 hostages evacuated
Dhaka, Feb 24 (bdnews24.com) — Almost half of the 300 foreigners, held hostage by anti-government protesters in the Libyan city of Darnah, have been shifted to Egypt border. The hostages evacuated by the Libyan army on Wednesday night include 17 Bangladeshis, one of the rescued Bangladeshi hostages, Shafiuddin Biswas, told bdnews24.com over phone on Thursday morning. "As many as 150 of the hostages were safely brought to the Egyptian frontier on board two vehicles of the Libyan army," he said expressing his ignorance about the fate of the remaining hostages. "Perhaps, they have also been handed over to their respective company authorities," Shafiuddin said. Those who have shifted to the Egyptian border will be flown to Egypt on board an Egyptian aircraft, he added. He, however, said passports of all of the evacuated persons had been kept to their respective company authorities. "The companies have assured us that they would hand over the passports before noon," Shafiuddin said. Anti-government protesters held about 300 foreigners, including over 100 Bangladeshis, hostage in Darnah, east of Benghazi. bdnews24.com
