France is chartering special flights this Sunday to evacuate its most vulnerable nationals

France set up special flights on Sunday to allow its nationals “the most vulnerable” to leave Haiti.

These flights, chartered by the Ministry of the Armed Forces, are due to begin this Sunday, said the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, while commercial air links with Port-au-Prince are interrupted.

L’French embassy in Port-au-Prince remains open and continues its activity despite the degraded conditions,” the ministry also specified. “It remains fully mobilized in support of the French community on site”she adds.
