ISLAMABAD–A convoy of 600 Pakistanis reached Al-Hudaydah Sunday after escaping from the embattled Yemeni capital Sanaa to leave for Pakistan.
Pakistan’s ambassador to Yemen Irfan Shami told PTV that 482 Pakistanis will be evacuated on the first flight.
“The plane has landed at Hudaydah and boarding has started. On seeing the plane landing, stranded Pakistanis expressed their happiness by clapping,” the ambassador said.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was personally monitoring the evacuation and had directed the officials to ensure safe return of every citizen, his spokesperson added.
The convoy was inspected heavily by the Yemeni armed forces and the Houthi militia before it was permitted to exit Sanaa.
