Libya: UN Mission Concludes Libya Visit

A United Nations mission wrapped up a visit to southern Libya, Libya Herald reported on Sunday (November 25th). The delegation spent a week in the region to study border controls, illegal immigration, human rights and infrastructure. The UN delegation met with local military council members, officials and NGO representatives in Ghat, Obari, Murzuk and Sebha.

"One year after my first visit to the region, I was able to see the south in a different context - one that is moving further down the path of the democratic transition," UN Deputy Special Representative Georg Charpentier Charpentier said.

Problems related to the mission objectives must still be resolved, he said, citing insufficient border security and persistent illegal immigration issues.
