posted on 01/06/2006: 1784 views

Naji Al Nuaimi arrived home last night to hero's welcome by his relatives and fellow citizens. The helicopter that took the released diplomat from Abu Dhabi landed on a square thronged by thousands of citizens, led by Al Nuaimi's family members and relatives. The huge masses then took to the streets in a long motorcade escorting Naji to his family residence.

At home, the diplomat who was released last night after 14 days in captivity in Iraq, was accorded an emotional welcome. Naji's father expressed his gratitude to the UAE government for its ceaseless efforts that culminated in the safe release and home return of his son.

"The keen follow up by HE the President of the developments of Naji's ordeal was a great source of consolation for us, and it culminated in Naji's release," the overwhelmed father said. Once the news of Naji's release went out, Al Nuaimi's residence was swarmed by thousands of well-wishers.
