MOSCOW, October 3 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defence /EMERCOM/ has dispatched a jet to Tunisia to fly home a group of Russian diplomats and their families, who were evacuated from Libya after Wednesday’s attack on the Russian embassy in Tripoli and a warning from the Libyan Foreign Ministry that the local authorities could not guarantee the safety and security of the ambassadorial compound.
“A special jet took off at 22:40 Moscow Standard Time /19:40 GMT/ and started heading for the Tunisian island of Djerba to pick up the diplomats from the embassy in Tripoli and members of their families,” EMERCOM spokeswoman Irina Rossius said.
She indicated that the jet would bring the evacuees to the Domodedovo airport in the morning of October 4.”
