Libyan authorities repatriated last Thursday 12 Egyptian minors, whose fathers were killed in the fighting between Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous Operation forces and ISIS militants in Sirte.

The International Committee of the Red Cross said on Thursday that in coordination with the authorities in Libya and Egypt, it had facilitated the repatriation of 12 unaccompanied Egyptian minors to Cairo.

These children were among several others found following the fighting in Sirte about two years ago.

They have since been cared for by the Libyan Red Crescent (LRC) in a facility in Misrata, the ICRC said.
