Wanted Airplane for Libya

Dear insansapinas,

Parang gusto kong ipahiram yong aking magic broom para makatulong sa mga Filipino sa Libya. Habang ang mga ibang bansa ay nagpadala na ng mga eruplano sa Libya, ang Pilipinas, Kay Ganda Koh ay naghahanap pa ng eruplano.

"Nakakuha sila ng landing rights just in case may eroplano tayong makuha. Naka-secure sila ng approval ng visa upon arrival (The team secured landing rights at Tunisia just in case we can get an airplane to evacuate our OFWs. The team will also help the OFWs get visas once they arrive there from Libya)," he said.
Sabi naman ng report galing sa Libya:

Martinez said reports reaching the Migrante office in Manila from their partner organisations in Libya said many of the nearly 30,000 Filipinos living there were stranded.
He said a group of 100 workers in Al Kufrah district in southeastern Libya bordering Egypt had been abandoned by their local supervisors to fend for themselves inside their camps.

ITo ang mga ginawa ng ibang bansa.
