A Morden family was reunited yesterday at the Winnipeg International Airport.

The wife and 2 daughters of Dr. Khalid Rashid were in Lebanon last week as violence escalated between Hezbollah militants and the Israeli army.

Rashid says the families trek back to Canada began Friday when they were taken by boat to Turkey.

From there they flew to Montreal where volunteers and Canadian personnel were on hand to help them.

They then flew to Winnipeg.

Rashid says he's thankful to all the different people and organizations that were involved in bringing his family home.
