DUBAI: Two cabin crew of the national airline Saudia remain unaccounted for in Sri Lanka, according to a spokesman.

One crew member was injured following the Easter Sunday attacks which killed at least 290 people and injured 500, but the location of two others was unknown.

“As a result of the tragic events that took place in Colombo, Sri Lanka this morning there are SAUDIA crew members that are reportedly unaccounted for,” a statement released by the airline after the attacks on Sunday read.

The two members, that remain missing, have not been named but they are both Saudi Arabian nationals.

No details have been released of where the two were at the time of the blasts.

The airline spokesman told Arab News on Monday that they were continuing to work with the Saudi Arabian embassy in Sri Lanka.
