Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Seheli Sabrin said flights carrying 135 Bangladeshi nationals reached Jeddah airport on Sunday.
Mohammad Javed Patwary, Bangladesh's Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Consul General of Bangladesh in Jeddah Md Nazmul Hoque welcomed the Bangladeshis.
They were kept at the Jeddah-Bangladesh International School, where necessary arrangements have been made. All these evacuees will leave for Dhaka on a flight from Jeddah Airport tonight on a Biman Bangladesh flight.
