Flop to Break Libyan Embargo [Archives:1998/50/Local News]

December 14 1998

148 Yemeni personalities – from parliament, the ruling PGC party, sheikhs, and others, formed what was termed as a people’s delegation to Libya.
They leased an Egypt Air plane, which they tried to force land in Libya, in an attempt to break the international embargo. Instead, the pilot landed them in Tunisia, before bringing them back home.
