Ethiopia Airlifts 414 Citizens from Saudi Arabia

ADDIS ABABA –  Ethiopia has brought home 414 its citizens from Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, its foreign ministry said.

The returnees including 120 children arrived at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport on Wednesday afternoon, according to the spokesperson office of the Ministry.

Officials of the Ministry welcomed the returnees upon their arrival at the Airport.

More than 2500 Ethiopians, mostly women and children, have been airlifted since the start of the ongoing repatriation push two weeks ago.

The effort focuses on bringing back people “who were not able to come to Ethiopia in the previously arranged mass flights”, according to the ministry.
