ISLAMABAD: The bodies of 11 Pakistanis, who drowned in a shipwreck off Libyan coast on January 31, reached Pakistan on Wednesday.

The bodies were shifted to Islamabad through a private airline from Jeddah. The deceased have been identified as Ikram-ul-Haq, Tanzeel-ur-Rehman, Azmat Bibi, Waleed Ikram, Farhan Ali, Qasim Baig, Mohammad Aziz, Kashif Jamil, Mirza Ghulam Farid and Mazhar Hussain. On Feb 9, the Foreign Office had said that it planned to bring back the bodies of the Pakistanis who drowned when a boat carrying migrants capsized off the coast of Zuwara. Earlier, the FIA had apprehended the central character of a human smuggling network that facilitated illegal transportation of Pakistani nationals. The prime suspect, Mehboob Shah, was apprehended along with an accomplice, Mudassir, during a raid in Gujrat, said FIA Deputy Director Mufakhir Adeel.
