Residents of Tripoli's Janzour have called for a protest on Thursday, October 8, to call for the release of the mayor of the town. Reports indicate that the mayor was arrested after "compelling" the Tripoli West Power Station not to participate in a load shedding program. Residents have reportedly threatened to close the Coastal Road in the area as part of their protest. The exact timing and location of the demonstration have not been confirmed.
A heightened security presence and localized travel disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the event.
Those in Janzour 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.
