Event

Aircraft belonging to the Libyan National Army (LNA) reportedly conducted airstrikes on Government of National Accord (GNA) targets in Misrata at approximately 19:15 (local time) on Wednesday, May 6. The GNA have denied that the explosions were the result of airstrikes, stating that they were due to badly stored ammunition. As of Wednesday evening, there have been no reports of casualties.

Advice

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.
