1 March 2011, Dubai: Tents and blankets being loaded, bound for the Tunisia/Libya border

A relief flight carrying aid supplies from the British Government departed from Dubai earlier today and has now arrived in Tunisia. The flight contained 36,000 blankets and 300 tents to provide much needed shelter for at least 1,500 refugees who have fled over the Libyan border.

 

The tents and blankets will be handed over to the UNHCR who will deliver them on the ground.
