Security forces conducted counter-terrorism raids in the outskirts of Tripoli and in Khoms in neighbouring Murqub district on Sunday, October 18. At least four people, including Libyan and foreign nationals, were detained in the operations and reports suggest that they had improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in their possession.
