Morocco started Saturday the third and final operation to repatriate its nationals stranded in Libya, which has been for the last six years a stepping stone to illegal migration to Europe.

The Moroccan Ministry of Expatriates and Migration said the operation was launched on Friday and aimed at bringing home 338 Moroccan migrants stuck in Libya.

The migrants were to be flown to Casablanca on the Libyan airline Afriqiyah and then transported by bus to their home towns, the ministry said in a statement.

Morocco has already repatriated 435 of its citizens from Libya in two separate operations in August and December.
