More refugees from Libya arrive in Rwanda

The refugees are mainly Eritrean and Somali nationals

The third batch of refugees, who were being held in detention centres in Libya, arrived in Rwanda in the early hours of Monday as part of a resettlement programme.

A Rwandan government account has shared pictures of the group on Twitter:

The refugees are mainly Eritrean and Somali nationals.

The group was transported from Kigali airport to the Gashora transit centre, 40 km (24 miles) east of the capital, where the other 189 refugees who arrived in September and October have been settled.

The resettlement is part of an agreement between the Rwandan government, the UN refugee agency and the African Union.

They agreed to resettle 500 out of more than 4,000 migrants being held in Libya after their illegal journeys to Europe were halted.
