All Sri Lankans who were languishing under the Jeddah’s Kandara Bridge have been directed to a detention centre.
About 1000 Sri Lankans stranded in Saudi Arabia from November last year had been under the bridge. Co Consul General Sabarullah Khan said the last batch of 117 stranded workers have been temporarily housed at a special accommodation given by the Government at the Hajj Terminal near the Jeddah Islamic Port. Among them were 53 women. Mr. Khan said action would be initiated to send them back to Sri Lanka as soon as possible.
