Egypt urges workers To travel Tripoli by air not ground

Ahram Online, Thursday 12 Jul 2012

Minister of manpower says Egyptian workers should fly to Tripoli, as Libyan authorities also fly workers from Ben Ghazi to Tripoli by plane because revolutionaries block highways

Refaat Hassan, minister of manpower and immigration, on Thursday urges all Egyptian workers travelling to Tripoli to take a plane directly from Cairo Airport to the Libyan capital instead of using Libyan highways.

This statement comes after the Libyan authorities flew Egyptians from Ben Ghazi in the east to Tripoli in the west by plane to bypass Libyan highways blocked by revolutionaries.
