E-mail Print
At least 148 Sri Lankans arrived today after they were deported from the Republic of Benin, Africa when they were arrested attempting to migrate illegally.

The Lankans had gathered in Benin through various routes and intended to migrate to Canada, initial reports suggested.

The Canadian government, Sri Lankan embassy and International Organization for Migration (IOM) were instrumental in deporting the Sri Lankans back to the country. (Deepa Adhikari)
