Over 200 Romanian citizens living in Lebanon arrived in their home country by plane on Thursday night - the third such flight from the conflict-stricken Middle East. They arrived on the Bucharest Airport aboard three planes of the Romanian airline company Tarom.

This brings the number of repatriated Romanians to about 740.

Several other dozens Romanians who could not catch the planes back home were sent or transported to various spots in Cyprus and Syria to take future flights to Romania.
