Families of Indian nurses, who are stranded in war-torn Libya, prayed for safe and early return of their loved ones. Libyan forces on Tuesday battled Islamist militants with rockets and warplanes for control of an army base in the eastern city of Benghazi after at least 30 people were killed in overnight fighting. Worried over the tense situation, the Indian mission in the conflict-ridden country has suggested its citizens to evacuate Libya and avoid going to conflict zones. India is also preparing for the safe return of its people and is even assuring to arrange for those who cannot afford to come back. Husband of a stranded nurse Shineymol, Rajeev Kurian, in Alappuzha district of Kerala, said the situation was worsening.
