Our fear is that Libya falls into the hands of Salafist terrorists and that the state becomes like Somalia," Niger President Mahamadou Issoufou PARIS, Dec 6 (Reuters) - Libya risks becoming a failed state like Somalia, Niger President Mahamadou Issoufou said on Friday, a day after gunmen shot dead an American teacher in the eastern city of Benghazi.. Niger, which adjoins Libya to the south and has fought Islamists at home, wants to reinforce military ties with Western partners and neighbouring states as al Qaeda-linked militants regroup in southern Libya after French-led forces ousted them from Mali this year.. "Our fear is that Libya falls into the hands of Salafist terrorists and that the state becomes like Somalia," Issoufou told reporters ahead of a Franco-African summit in Paris.. "Sadly, were seeing that the terrorists are there and that armed Salafist militia are in Benghazi, with people being killed almost every day. We must stabilise Libya.".

Tuberculosis case detection rate reached 54.0 % in 2017 in Libya, according to World Bank / WHO. This is 20.0 % more than in the previous year. Historically, tuberculosis case detection rate in Libya reached an all time high of 91.0 % in 2005 and an all time low of 14.0 % in 1991. When compared to Libyas main peers, tuberculosis case detection rate in Algeria amounted to 80.0 %, 51.0 % in Chad, 63.0 % in Egypt and 80.0 % in Tunisia in 2017. Libya has been ranked 152nd within the group of 173 countries we follow in terms of tuberculosis case detection rate, 147 places behind the position seen 10 years ago. The tuberculosis case detection rate (all forms) is the proportion of newly notified tuberculosis cases (including relapses) to estimated incident cases (case detection, all forms).. ...
Human Rights Watch: The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has failed to acknowledge dozens of civilian casualties from air strikes during its 2011 Libya campaign, and has not investigated possible unlawful attacks, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today.. The 76-page report, "Unacknowledged Deaths: Civilian Casualties in NATOs Air Campaign in Libya," examines in detail eight NATO air strikes in Libya that resulted in 72 civilian deaths, including 20 women and 24 children. It is based on one or more field investigations to each of the bombing sites during and after the conflict, including interviews with witnesses and local residents.. "NATO took important steps to minimize civilian casualties during the Libya campaign, but information and investigations are needed to explain why 72 civilians died," said Fred Abrahams, special adviser at Human Rights Watch and principal author of the report. "Attacks are allowed only on military targets, and serious questions remain in some ...

Daniel Horner. Updated on December 5, 2011. The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is preparing to send inspectors to two previously undeclared sites in Libya, the organization said in a Nov. 4 press release.. The announcement came in the days after statements by Ian Martin, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moons special representative in Libya, and a subsequent press conference by officials of the new Libyan government announcing the existence of the sites, whose locations were not disclosed.. According to the Nov. 4 release, Libyan authorities on Nov. 1 "advised the OPCW that further stocks of what are believed to be chemical weapons had been found." In his Nov. 28 opening statement to the week-long annual conference in The Hague of parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), OPCW Director-General Ahmet Üzümcü said his organization had received the "formal declaration by the Libyan authorities" updating the cataloguing of its chemical stockpiles that Libya had ...
More than 2,000 migrants have died in 2017 attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea into Europe, making this migration route one of the deadliest in the world. In 2016, 5,143 migrants died or went missing in the Mediterranean sea. Migrants recount stories of sexual abuse, exploitation and extortion throughout their journey to Europe. Yet, despite the challenges, a total of 145,355 migrants and refugees arrived in Europe by sea between 1 January and 15 October 2017, the International Organization for Migration reported. The main migration route into Europe is currently between Libya and Italy. In an effort to curb down migration, EU leaders contributed $215 million in 2017 to Libyas Government of National Accord, the product of UN-brokered peace talks that were concluded in 2015. Around 18,477 migrants have been rescued or intercepted in Libyan waters so far this year. They are then detained in formal and informal detention centers operated by Libyas Department for Combatting Illegal Migration ...

Kerry Nudges Obama Into North Africa - by MK Bhadrakumar. http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Middle_East/MC19Ak04.html. "...In effect, NATO will constitute a coalition of the willing from among member countries. One salient outcome of the voting was that 4 of the BRICS member countries (Brazil, Russia, India, and China - but not South Africa) abstained. The Indian stance was based on three points: that the resolution was not backed up by any report of the special representative of the UN Secretary General on Libya, and was being adopted while the African Union had yet to set up a panel to Libya - underlining that political efforts should have been exhausted first; There was relatively little credible information available on the Libya situation to back up the resolution; and there was no clarity about the actual operations authorized by 1973.... Egypts covert involvement carries much meaning. It highlights that the military junta in Cairo and the Obama administration are getting along famously ...
GENEVA / TUNIS (16 NOVEMBER 2015) - Libya continues to be embroiled in political strife and deadly violence, with multiple armed conflicts affecting several regions, and contributing to a general breakdown of law and order, according to a new UN human rights report released Monday. All parties in Libya "appear to be committing violations of international humanitarian law including those that may amount to war crimes" as well as "gross violations or abuses of international human rights law." The report lays bare in particular the abuses faced by vulnerable civilians such as internally displaced people, human rights defenders, migrants, asylum seekers and refugees.. The report, published jointly by the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) and the UN Human Rights Office, documents the indiscriminate shelling of civilian areas, the abduction of civilians, torture and executions, as well as deliberate destruction of property among other serious abuses and violations of international law in various ...
Fashion trends and music styles of the 1980s have returned, as we knew they inevitably would. And so, too, have the villains of the 80s: Iran and Libya. While Iran has made headlines for several years now, Libya has only recently rejoined the ranks of Muslim countries to be feared, with two very high profile events in the past month or so: Colonel Qaddafis rambling, sometimes incoherent speech at the United Nations, and the release of the man convicted of bombing Pam Am 103, one of the most notorious acts of terror in memory.. These two events can be looked at quite differently. After being in power for forty years, not much can be done about Qaddafi other than to wait for change to come from within Libya. Despite his eccentricities, he remains immensely popular and his Pan-African, Pan-Arab rhetoric makes him a natural ally for other African and Middle Eastern leaders. And amidst his claims at the United Nations about JFK conspiracy theories and other nonsense, he made some critical remarks ...
Misrata, Libya) - The National Transitional Council (NTC) in Libya should promptly open an independent and impartial investigation with international participation into the deaths of the former leader Muammar Gaddafi and his son Muatassim Gaddafi, Human Rights Watch said today.. The NTC and other sources reported the deaths of both men in Sirte on October 20, 2011. It is unclear whether the men died from wounds received in combat or were killed in custody. However, information obtained by Human Rights Watch, as well as videos and photographs apparently taken that day showing both men alive in the custody of anti-Gaddafi forces, indicate that they might have been executed after being detained.. "There is ample evidence to open a credible investigation into the deaths of Gaddafi and his son Muatassim," said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East and North Africa director at Human Rights Watch. "Finding out how they died matters. It will set the tone for whether the new Libya will be ruled by law or by ...
On the 24th of July 2007, 5 Bulgarian nurses and 1 Palestinian doctor were released from Libya after having been jailed for more than 8 years [1]. They were accused by the Libyan government of intentionally infecting over 400 children by injecting them with HIV at the state-run Al-Fateh Childrens Hospital in Benghazi, Libya in 1998. The medics claimed their innocence in this matter but some confessed under the extreme pressure by being repeatedly tortured [2]. Through the years, their case was seen by several courts and the medics were subjected to numerous trials in which they were sentenced to death by fire squadron twice; first by the Benghazi Appeals court and then by the Libyan Supreme court. However, later on, the sentence was reduced to life imprisonment and they were released to Bulgaria by the High Judicial Council. This was after the families of the victims accepted compensation worth $1 million per child [3]. The Bulgarian President went much further by completely revoking their sentences
Spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights: Ravina Shamdasani. Location: Geneva. Date: 14 March 2017. Subject: Libya. Since the outbreak of hostilities in the oil crescent area in eastern Libya on 3 March this year, we have been receiving numerous reports of serious violations and abuses of international human rights and international humanitarian law committed by the parties to the conflict. Credible reports suggest that unlawful killings, including summary executions, hostage-taking, arbitrary detentions, torture, as well as widespread raids of civilian homes have been occurring, particularly in the towns of Ajdabiya, Benghazi, Brega and Beishir. The two main armed groups fighting for control of the eastern oil crescent at the moment are the Libyan National Army (LNA) and the Benghazi Defence Brigade (BDB). On 3 March, the BDB and its supporters attacked the oil crescent area and took it over from the LNA. The LNA has responded with repeated airstrikes in the area. We have ...

A team of scientists, led by Christopher Beard, professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Kansas, shed light on an otherwise poorly documented interval of evolutionary history through fossils discovered in the Libyan desert.. Beards work focuses on the origin and evolution of primates and anthropoids - the precursors to humans. His paper unveils a discovery of mammal fossils uncovered in the Zallah Oasis in the Sirt Basin of central Libya. The fossils date back to between 30 and 31 million years ago.. The paper is available online but has yet to be published in the April edition of the Journal of African Earth Sciences, and documents the findings of a 2013 expedition.. According to the University of Kansas official press release of said research, the study demonstrates how climate and environmental change can alter a local ecosystem.. The teams worked in a rock unit called the Zallah Oasis in Libyas Sirt Basin - an area that has "sporadically" produced fossil ...

The League of Arab States (LAS), the African Union (AU), the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) held a meeting at the headquarters of the League of Arab States on 18 March 2017 to discuss the situation in Libya and further coordinate their efforts in order to advance the political process and assist Libya in its democratic transition.
One glaring example concerns the agreement reached earlier this month at the Italian Ministry of Interior between what Italian daily La Repubblica called "the heads of the major tribes of South Libya, the Awlad Suleiman and the Tebu, at the presence of Tuareg leaders". This has been welcomed as a success of the "diplomacy of the desert" which aims to "stop the trafficking of human beings" coming from Libya.. Words matter. Plenty of other daily newspapers demonstrate that ethnic groups such as Tuareg and Tebu are still today often defined in terms of "tribes" directed by "heads". "Tribe" refers to a concept used by European scholars and observers to refer to non-European contexts. Roman gents, Basques, migrant populations coming from Central Asia in the 4th century CE, Celtic clans, to name a few, would easily "comply" with the category of "tribes": They are however addressed and evaluated according to different criteria.. The alleged existence of a "Middle East Tribal DNA", or that of an African ...
He began in Brazil as a sign of solidarity between the two largest democracies and economies in the Americas, and he sought to break through here with his themes of bold cooperation on energy, education and trade.. Yet the looming military action in Libya intruded throughout Obamas day of pleasantries and policy. Aides said the president was a fully engaged participant as events unfolded, huddling with his national security adviser, Tom Donilon, calling Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates, a vocal supporter of the no-fly-one resolution, and consulting with top national security staff, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, throughout the afternoon.. However, the cancellation of a planned news conference with Rousseff - which the White House said was Brazils call - limited Obamas comments on the matter for much of the day. By late afternoon, Obama hastily added a statement on Libya to announce that the United States has begun military operations with its ...

Annual freshwater withdrawals; industry (% of total freshwater withdrawal) in Libya was last measured at 3.05 in 2011, according to the World Bank. Annual freshwater withdrawals refer to total water withdrawals, not counting evaporation losses from storage basins. Withdrawals also include water from desalination plants in countries where they are a significant source. Withdrawals can exceed 100 percent of total renewable resources where extraction from nonrenewable aquifers or desalination plants is considerable or where there is significant water reuse. Withdrawals for industry are total withdrawals for direct industrial use (including withdrawals for cooling thermoelectric plants). Data are for the most recent year available for 1987-2002.This page has the latest values, historical data, forecasts, charts, statistics, an economic calendar and news for Annual freshwater withdrawals - industry (% of total freshwater withdrawal) in Libya.

Background: Toxoplasma gondii infections are prevalent in humans and animals throughout Libya. Current diagnosis is based on detection of Toxoplasma-specific IgM and IgG. In this study, we established and optimized a diagnostic PCR assay for molecular diagnosis of T. gondii in Libya. Methods: From January to December, 2010, 177 blood and serum samples were collected from suspected patients. This includes: 140 women who have had spontaneous abortions, 26 HIV-positive patients, nine patients with leukemia and lymphoma, and two infants with ocular infection. Samples were screened for anti-Toxoplasma IgG and IgM antibodies before DNA extraction. The surface antigen gene 2 (SAG2) was targeted in a semi-nested PCR to amplify a 999 bp and a 614 bp fragment in the first and the second run respectively. Results: A total of 54/140 (38.5 %) women who have had spontaneous abortions, 23/26 (88 %) HIV patients, 6/9 (66.6 %) of the leukaemia and lymphoma patients, and one child with ocular infection were ...

In 2004, Americas sanctions were dropped "in exchange for Gaddafis (limited) collaboration, (paving) the way for a new era of US-Libyan bilateral trade." Americas main interest is Libyas vast oil, gas and other mineral reserves.

Its petrodollars "were reportedly invested in US Equity and Big Banks, including JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and others, and into (companies) like the Carlyle Group, one of Americas most seedy arms dealers." ...

Libya - Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, is calling Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi delusional. Her remark followed Gadhafis ABC interview in which he insisted that there are no protests in Libya and that citizens love him. It is actually day 15 of massive protests in the chaotic country. Thousands are demanding Gadhafis ouster, as the world wonders what would happen if he did step down. Enigmatic and eccentric, he has ruled Libya for more than 40 years. As night fell Monday, forces loyal to him tried to retake the town of Zawiya with tanks and anti-aircraft guns, an opposition leader said Tuesday. The town, which is a short drive from Tripoli, the capital, seemed to be in control of those who oppose Gadhafi, so the pro-Gadhafi crowd was stopped, the opposition leader said.

BENGHAZI, Libya (AP) - At least two bomb-laden vehicles exploded Thursday near a group of Libyan National Army leaders in their eastern stronghold of Benghazi, killing four people and wounding 33 others and casting doubt on the LNAs 3-month-old offensive on Tripoli, the U.N.-backed governments capital.The spokesman for the Benghazi-based rival governments Interior Ministry, Tarek El-Kharraz, said several senior LNA figures, including the commander of LNA special forces, had gathered in western Benghazi to attend the funeral service of a high-ranking military general.El-Kharraz said the dead in the attack included two civilians and two soldiers, and the wounded included civilians, army personnel and police.

At least 26 Filipino nurses who were evacuated from a strife-torn area in Libya are to be reassigned to Libyan hospitals, the Department of Foreign Affairs said Saturday. DFA spokesman Raul Hernandez on his Twitter account said the Libyan health ministry sought the reassignment of the nurses. "(The Philippine Embassy in) Libya (said) 26 nurses evacuated from Bani Walid (are) to be reassigned to hospitals after (the) Libyan Ministry of Health asked their redeployment," he said. But he did not say what would happen to the other two Filipino workers who had been evacuated last October 4. Last Wednesday, Hernandez said the Philippine embassy in Libya evacuated 28 Filipino "medical and other workers" from Bani Walid to Tripoli. The evacuated Filipinos were brought to the Embassy quarters at the time, he said. Earlier, Hernandez also denied claims there were 22 OFWs who were "kidnapped" in Misrata, Libya. He was referring to the claim of militant group Migrante Middle East that 22 Filipino nurses and ...
On June 28, Assistant Secretary of State William Burns opened a U.S. liaison office in Tripoli, Libya, reestablishing direct diplomatic relations after a near quarter-century break. The move caps a months-long effort to improve relations. In December 2003, Libcyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi announced that he would dismantle his weapons-of-mass-destruction programs. On April 23, 2004, the White House announced that the U.S. would ease its economic embargo against Libya.. President Bush has expressed his enthusiasm for the process. Speaking in the East Room of the White House on March 12, Bush noted the release Libyan dissident Fathi El-Jahmi, and said, "You probably have heard, Libya is beginning to change her attitude about a lot of things.". Well, maybe Libya has changed her rhetoric, but not her attitude. Speaking in Cairo on March 24, Saif Islam Qaddafi, the Libyan strongmans son, lectured Arab governments about democracy.
