Pakistan accepts 120 deportees from Saudi Arabia

LAHORE: Pakistan admitted more than 100 illegal migrants deported by Saudi Arabia despite initially refusing them entry.

A flight from Jeddah had landed with about 120 expatriates, including 15 women, at the Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore. The immigration authorities, however, refused them entry as they did not have the required documents needed to prove their nationality.

Later, the deportees were reportedly allowed entry on the orders of the interior ministry.
