Demonstrators gathered in Zawiyah for a second night of protests denouncing poor living conditions on Friday, August 21. Roads were reportedly blocked with burning tires; however, no clashes were reported.
Further protests are likely in the coming days, and a heightened security presence with associated localized disruptions should be anticipated.
Those in Libya are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
