Three workers from one of South Korea's construction firms were hurt by rioters in Libya
South Korea set up a 24-hour monitoring team on the unrest in the Middle East after three workers from one of the nation’s construction companies were injured by rioters in Libya, the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs said in an e-mailed statement on Monday.
The government may consider sending a plane to Libya for an emergency evacuation of South Koreans if the situation worsens, according to the statement.
The workers were from Shinhan Co and their injuries were minor, the ministry said.
Officials at Shinhan didn’t immediately respond to telephone calls seeking comment on the incident.
