Pakistanis believed to have died in 2009, alive in Israeli prison

Five years ago a merchant vessel MV Danny FII met with an accident and capsized in the Red Sea carrying 83 passengers and crew, including 16 Pakistanis.

It has now come to light that the 16 Pakistanis are alive and being held captive at an Israeli prison.

Renowned social worker Ansar Burney revealed on Tuesday, that families of 16 missing Pakistanis received news that their loved ones are alive and being held at an Israeli prison.

According to Burney, the families approached Ansar Burney Trust for help on humanitarian grounds, following which Ansar Burney contacted the Government of Israel in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem with a request to help families.
