By Staff

The bodies of the 21 workers killed in a recent traffic accident in Al Ain City were flown home to their countries by the UAE authorities upon finalizing all administrative procedures, the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), Sheikh Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Butti, said.

The UAE will give salaries of 12 months (one year) to each one of the families of the dead workers to mitigate the loss of their providers while judicial authorities will determine the financial compensation which is legally due to the dead, he explained.

"MoFA followed up the sad traffic accident which took place on 4th of February in Al Ain City and involved workers from Arab and Asian countries leaving 21 dead and 24 others injured, he noted.

The official expressed heartfelt sympathy with the families of the dead and prayed to Allah Almighty to bestow mercy on them and patience on their families.
