Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy has written to Union External Affair Minister Sushma Swaraj to ensure safe return of Indian nurses, who have been rescued from strife-torn Libya.

The Kerala Chief Minister has asked the External Affairs Minister to arrange a special flight to bring back Malayalee nurses, who arrived in Tunisia from Libya. This was declared by Chandy in a Facebook post on his official page.

Indian nurses working at al-Jala hospital in Libya’s second largest city Benghazi had requested for evacuation a day after Islamic militia officially declared control over the city.

As many as 58 nurses, most of whom belong to Kerala, had reached Tunisia from Tripoli.
