HIGHLIGHTS

  • United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Valerie Amos has reiterated her call for a temporary cessation of hostilities in Misrata and other areas affected by the conflict.

  • The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees is actively discouraging migrants from leaving Tripoli by boat after a number of boats carrying migrants capsized. The number of people leaving Libya for Europe by boat has increased significantly since the start of the crisis and some 1, 000 people are still missing.

  • Cash and fuel shortages are restricting movement, impacting on the operational capacity of infrastructure and availability of supplies.

  • The US$310 million Flash Appeal for the Libyan Crisis is currently funded at 48 per cent with $150 million committed. It is being revised and will be launched next week.
