Yesterday five more Thai nationals have safely returned home from Nepal with the help of the government following the second powerful quake in the already devastated country.

The Thai government yesterday morning sent a team of officials on a C-130 aircraft to Nepal on a mission to deliver necessary items to earthquake victims in the country. On their return trip, the authorities picked up five Thai citizens who had earlier requested to be evacuated back to Thailand. The group, consisting of three children and two adults, has arrived safely.

Ms Nittaya Boonlong, one of the evacuees, revealed upon arrival that even though her residence in Kathmandu was not damaged by the tremors, the second major quake that struck on Tuesday has renewed safety concerns among local people. She said she decided to leave Nepal after her family in Thailand suggested her to do so until the situation returns to normal.

The government had earlier brought back five groups of Thai nationals from the quake-battered country. Meanwhile, Thailand’s provision of aid and support of rehabilitation work are still ongoing.
