    All evacuees from Lebanon, who arrived early this morning on board the Greek vessel Ierapetra, have now disembarked, Omiros Mavrommatis, Director of Consular Affairs at the Cyprus Foreign Ministry has told CNA.

    Cyprus Foreign Ministry Permanent Secretary Sotos Zakheos had said earlier today that Cyprus is making arrangements in cooperation with Greece to transfer 11 Cypriots, including the three Cypriot children, who were on vacation at their grandparents house in Nabadiye, and were not transferred with Ierapetra ship.

    We are making arrangements so that everyone is returns home, Zakheos said.

    Charalambous said that Ierapetra is scheduled to set sail tonight again for Lebanon, carrying a second team of doctors, nurses, child psychologists and social workers.
