TIMEFRAME expected from 10/8/2020, 12:00 AM until 10/10/2020, 11:59 PM (Africa/Tripoli). COUNTRY/REGION Tripoli


Protesters gathered outside the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) building in Tripoli on Wednesday, October 7, to express various grievances. Reports indicate that those gathered denounced the current political process in the country and the presence of Aquila Saleh, the speaker of the House of Representatives, together with poor living conditions and the ongoing civil war, and called on UNSMIL to provide more support for civilians in Libya. The demonstration passed off peacefully.

Further associated protests are to be anticipated in Tripoli and elsewhere in Libya over the near term.


Those in Tripoli are advised to monitor developments, avoid large gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.

The security environment in Libya remains complex. Although travel is possible in some areas (with appropriate security protocols in place), other areas should be considered strictly off-limits. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
