A total of 71 Bangladeshi nationals returned home from Lebanese capital Beirut, which was battered by twin blasts, on Wednesday.
 
An aircraft of Bangladesh Air Force (BAF), which delivered relief materials to Lebanon, brought the Bangladeshis home. It landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in the morning.

The expatriates came back home free of cost through Bangladesh mission in Beirut.

Earlier, Bangladesh sent "emergency supplies" to Lebanon for the people of Beirut as a token of friendship who are trying to recover from the damage caused by the huge twin explosions.

The BAF aircraft with the emergency supplies reached Beirut on Monday.

The goodwill aid included 9 tonnes of food items, 2 tonnes of medicines and medical supplies.

The blasts killed more than 160 people, injured over 6,000 people and left more than 300,000 homeless. 

Five Bangladeshi nationals are among the dead and over 100 others, including 21 members of Bangladesh Navy, are among the injured.
