Thai evacuees arrive in Tunisia

A group of 48 Thais including three students evacuated from Libya arrived in Tunisia on Wednesday morning.

The Thai Foreign Ministry welcomed them at the border and took them to Tunis by bus, a journey of about 10 hours.

The ministry is now seeking commercial flights to fly them back to Thailand. One of them, Akkapon Supapun, said there was still fighting in Tripoli when he left.

He added that he wished to return to work in Libya because of the good income but would keep an eye on situation before making any decision.
