Germany will host around 200 refugees who fled the fighting in Libya last spring and have been staying ever since in a camp in Tunisia, the German embassy in Tunis said on Friday.

After 18 months in Choucha camp on the Tunisia-Libya border “195 refugees will be able to leave this Monday, September 3, for Germany to start a new life,” it said in a joint statement with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Six other refugees will join the others in Germany later as they were “forced to postpone their trip for medical reasons,” said a source.

The refugees are from Sudan, Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia and were in Libya when the conflict that led to the fall of Moamer Kadhafi’s regime erupted in early 2011.

The camp in Tunisia currently houses some 2,200 refugees.
