Hundreds have been killed and thousands displaced in over six weeks of clashes and heavy artillery fire. The Misrata side emerged victorious in the battle over Tripoli’s international airport, taking control of the capital, and made advances around Benghazi, but the larger political divide remains unresolved.

Several attempts at reaching a ceasefire agreement failed in July.

In World Bank client countries, access to improved water sources increased from 73 percent in 1990 to to 86.4 percent in 2010, and access to improved sanitation from 42 percent to 56.3 percent.
