The Foreign Ministry said this afternoon that it is assisting 11 Maltese nationals trapped after anti-government protesters blocked the airport at Bangkok, Thailand - two more than advised two days ago.
The ministry said that arrangements for alternative flights had been made for all of them except two Maltese married to Thai women and another Maltese who had not yet been contacted.
