200 more Indians from Iraq return

New Delhi, July 6: Two-hundred Indians landed here from Najaf in trouble-torn Iraq on a special chartered flight of Iraq Airways early on Sunday.

The flight landed here at around 0430 hours in the morning carrying the passengers.

More passengers are expected to be airlifted and brought back from Iraq over the next two days from special flights including that of Air India.

The plane was chartered by the External Affairs Ministry.

Nearly 600 Indian nationals will come back from conflict-hit Iraq over the next two days, External Affairs Ministry had said yesterday.
