300 Pakistanis stranded in Libya need urgent help


KARACHI: Ansar Burney Trust International Chairman, Ansar Burney said on Thursday that almost 700 Pakistanis, including dozens of trafficked, are still stranded in Sirte, war-torn country Libya, while almost 300, including women and children, are waiting anxiously to come back to Pakistan as soon as possible.

Burney said that recently one Pakistani Mohammad Imtiaz, son of Mohammad Sadiq, resident of Mian Channu, died in critical circumstances at Sirte, Libya and at present, his body is lying in a hospital at Sirte.

He said since air flights and airports are closed in Sirte so the only possible way to evacuate Pakistanis safely is Sirte seaport by sending ship from Pakistan.

Burney asked Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif, Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Mohammad Zakaullah, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Commander of Pakistan Navy at Karachi, Vice Admiral Syed Arifullah Hussaini to save precious lives of almost 300 Pakistanis including women and children by evacuating them from Sirte, who wanted to come back to Pakistan.
