Kottayam, Feb.22 (ANI): The family members of an Indian nurse trapped in Libya pray for her safe return from the restive country.

The family of Agnus Thomas, a nurse from Kerela who is working in Libya, is praying for her safe return since the country is facing violent anti-government protests.

With the ongoing protests in Libya against Gaddafi’s government, the fears of Agnus’s family have grown.

“I am praying to God to bring back my child safely as soon as possible to her home. This entire family is living for her only,” said Agnus’s grandmother.

Agnus’s’s family managed to speak to her, but said they are worried about the worsening situation.

“With great difficulty, we contacted her yesterday. When we spoke, she cried a lot and told me that protesters would kill them,” said Agnus’s mother.

Over 190 nurses from Kerala are stranded in Libya, most of them are without necessities like food and water.

The families of those working are hoping the Indian government evacuates them quickly. (ANI)
