A chartered plane carrying 180 Pakistanis reached Lahore from Libya on Tuesday morning.

A Turkish construction company in Libya had hired two chartered airplanes to extradite its 350 Pakistani workers back home.

The first flight brought 170 Pakistanis last night, while the second one reached Lahore this morning.

The Turkish company also gave $250 to each Pakistani as travel expenditure.

The expats told the media at the airport that their countrymen in Libya are in deep trouble owing to the law and order situation.

They also complained that the Pakistani embassy did not contact them.

Saeed Khan | 10 years ago | Reply Pakistani govt does not care about its citizens both at home and those abroad. Its shameful. But what can you expect from a government which has co-operated with the US in the murder of its own citizens, allowed US to dictate to it, allowed the kidnap, torture and murder of its citizens. Zardari/Ghilani duo are traitors who need to be removed. Pakistan needs a strong government which embodies the Islamic values of the people. Enough secular, corrupt politicians who would sell their own mothers.
Aristo | 10 years ago | Reply Had any of the VIPs or their progeny be there, the entire foreign office, government machinery, army, air force, navy would get upside down to fetch them here. WHAT A SHAME!
