ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – A flight of Pakistan International Airport (PIA) flew from Djibouti landed here on Friday with 176 Pakistanis who were stranded in war-torn Yemen, local media reported.

Officials said the PIA airbus PK-7003, which flew from Karachi airport in Friday’s wee hours, reached safely in federal capital.

The Pakistanis were rescued from Aden port city of Yemen through a Chinese naval ship yesterday.

Owing to the dilapidated security conditions in Aden, the Chinese ship docked in the open sea near Aden and evacuees were shuttled to the ship on board small boats.
