MOGADISHU Somalia (Xinhua) -- The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has helped 14 Somali migrants to voluntarily return home from Tanzania and Uganda following months of confinement in detention centers.

Hassan Ali Khaire, Prime Minister of Somalia confirmed the arrival of the Somalis in the capital, Mogadishu on Wednesday.

“We are happy to welcome back home 14 of our nationals who were incarcerated in Uganda and Tanzania,” Khaire said on Wednesday evening.

“We continue to strive to secure the freedom of Somalis stranded or incarcerated abroad and facilitate their safe return home,” he added.

According to Somali government, more than 1,000 Somalis have been repatriated from Libya, India, Seychelles, Eritrea, Sudan, and Tanzania in the last 12 months.
