Event

Protesters gathered in Tobruk (Butnan district) on Sunday, September 6, to denounce the poor state of the city's sewage system. Reportedly, protesters blocked roads in the city and protested against overflowing sewers. Protesters vowed to continue their action and call out those they feel are responsible for the poor infrastructure. The demonstrations seemingly remained peaceful and no arrests or clashes were immediately reported.

Demonstrations and associated localized disruptions are likely to continue in Tobruk and elsewhere in the near term.

Advice

Those in Tobruk are advised to monitor developments, anticipate localized disruption, and heed any directives issued by local authorities. All demonstrations and political gatherings in Libya should be avoided due to the risk of incidental violence and aggressive crowd-dispersal operations by security forces.
