· The recent inter-agency mission to Tripoli and the surrounding areas found that IDPs in the area are receiving adequate assistance from the Government with some concerns for food needs in the longer term. The mission observed long queues at petrol stations and was informed by the Government of food and medical commodities running low.

· A round table meeting - entitled “Sharaka” or partnership – was held in Cairo on 6 June. The meeting brought together Arab, Islamic and western organisations involved in providing relief to Libya. Four key areas were identified for improved partnership and cooperation: borders, early recovery, health and food security.

· The number of people who left Libya and have not returned is now estimated at over 635,000; of which 279,359 are Third Country Nationals.

· There are an estimated 8,000 to 10,000 Malians and thousands of Egyptians, according to the Mali and Egyptian Ambassadors to Libya in Tripoli. Many are reportedly in the southwest towns of Sabha, Gadames, Ubari and Murzuk. According to IOM, up to 25,000 Chadians remain stranded in Gatroum, in southwestern Libya, where an IOM mission is planned.

· The US$407 million revised Regional Flash Appeal for the Libyan Crisis is currently funded at 47 per cent with US$190 million committed and $3.6 million in pledges.
