Libyan Unrest - 2014

The power vacuum left by the overthrow of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi has resulted in a number of groups struggling to achieve superiority and control the country.

As in 2011, countries whose citizens work in Libya are organizing transportation (sea & air) to take them out of the country.

Already, a number of flights by Maltese- and Libyan-registered aircraft have been evacuating people to Malta, including patients in need of medical treatment.
