Stockholm: Sweden is ready to send a special ambulance plane to India to evacuate European Union citizens injured in the terror attacks in Mumbai.
The Foreign Ministry says a Boeing 737-800 has been prepared following a request from the European Union. Ministry spokesman Anders Jorle says the plane is ready to take off once the EU gives the green light.
Jorle said Thursday the plane is equipped with six intensive care units for severely injured patients. It also has space for 23 people with serious but not life-threatening injuries.
