GENEVA (AFP) - A ship chartered to evacuate around 300 foreigners from Tripoli was prevented from docking by rebel forces due to security concerns, the International Organisation for Migration said Tuesday. "The information we are getting from the (rebels) is that the security conditions in the port area are not good enough for the ship to dock," IOM spokesman Jean-Philippe Chauzy told reporters. The spokesman said around 1,700 Filipinos, 2,000 Bangladeshi and 1,500 to 2,000 Egyptians had registered with their embassies to be evacuated from Tripoli. He also said that there were many sub-Saharan African migrants in Tripoli's suburbs who had been unable to reach their embassies, some of which were unstaffed. "As soon as (permission) is given, the first ship will move in and evacuate 300 people, they will probably be Filipinos," Chauzy said.
