TOKYO, October 26 (Itar-Tass) — The North Korean authorities have postponed the return home of North Korean nationals working in Libya. This was done to prevent the spreading of rumours about revolutionary events in that country and the death of its veteran leader Muammar Gaddafi, Tokyo media outlets report.
According to available information, about 200 North Korean nationals, who have worked in Libya as doctors, nurses or construction engineers, remain in that country.
Media reports say that the return of official North Korean representatives has been postponed not only from Libya but also from Egypt.
Pyongyang maintained close relations with Gaddafi’s regime, and local media outlets have not yet reported on his death.
