Two ferries carrying 4,500 Chinese workers from strife-torn Libya arrived at the Mediterranean island of Crete on Thursday, despite rough seas that left hundreds of Americans stranded on a docked ferry in Tripoli.
"The airport is just a zoo. There's about 10,000 people there, all trying to get out," Ewan Black of Great Britain told the BBC as he got off a flight at London's Gatwick Airport. "It's just absolutely manic; basically, it's uncontrolled."
"I lost all my luggage. It's literally bodies climbing over bodies to get to the door," Mr. Black said. "I was on my knees at one stage and so was my colleague, and it was actually one of the Libyan police who grabbed my arm when I showed him my passport and pulled me in, and I pulled the other guy in as well."
