Ten aid workers and seven Libyan officials left stranded on board a ship hired to carry aid from Libya to the Middle East disembarked yesterday and are waiting for their travel documents in order to leave Greece.

The captain of the ship, Strofades IV, faces abduction charges. The Greek-owned cargo ship broke its moorings at the Libyan port of Derna on Wednesday amid a chartering dispute and arrived at Piraeus on Friday, with the aid workers – seven Britons, two Irish nationals and an Algerian – and the Libyan officials on board.
