Two civilian helicopters which flew in and landed at Malta International Airport this afternoon carrying seven people. Informed sources said the helicopters 'escaped from Libya with no official clearance' but arrived in Malta regularly. Such was the haste of their departure from Libya, that only one of the passengers was carrying a passport. The passengers claimed they are French. Immigration police are checking the identities of the passengers while holding them at the airport.
