Chinese evacuees from Libya arrive at the port of Heraklion, on Crete island on February 24, 2011. Thousands of Chinese and scores of Europeans began landing Thursday at the port of Heraklion on the Greek island of Crete after their evacuation from unrest-hit Libya aboard chartered Greek ferries. The first boat from the Libyan port of Benghazi, the ferry Hellenic Spirit, reached Heraklion after 1200 GMT and was followed by the ferry Olympic champion, an AFP photographer reported.
