Reunion Island has set free seven Sri Lankan fishermen who were detained for entering the seas off the French island illegally.
The boat with the Sri Lankans was detained after it entered Reunion island last month.
Seven men were on the fishing boat registered in Sri Lanka.
The boat was identified as being registered under the name “Roshan” and was detained when it entered the waters off Reunion island.
Earlier last month another group of Sri Lankans had also reached Reunion island by boat and sought asylum.
