Turkish workers “trapped” in Ghat Airport

More than 450 Turkish workers have been stranded for five days at Ghat airport, apparently trapped by fighting between armed groups, according to a report from Libya Herald.

Turkish broadcaster NTV said the 457 Turks were facing shortages of food and water, and it is claimed that armed men have seized the phones, cash and travel documents of some of the workers.

Meanwhile 36 of the workers arrived in Istanbul late on Monday on a Turkish Airlines plane from Misurata, according to a report from Daily Sabah.
