The incident occurred in Bani Walid, approximately 180 km (110 miles) southeast of the capital Tripoli, which is a transit point for migrants trying to reach Europe. People traffickers and kidnappers are believed to run 20 detention centres in the town.

 

“This latest deadly incident demonstrates, once again, the huge challenge of providing protection to refugees in Libya, where many people fleeing war and persecution fall prey to criminal networks,” UNHCR said.

Residential building of Mali?

The residential building where Malian Mamoudou ‘spiderman’ Gassama, scaled to save a small boy dangling from a balcony in the French capital, Paris, has become a tourist site.

 

A local resident identified as Chantal told AFP: “since Saturday, it hasn’t stopped, every day people have been coming to look at it themselves.”

 

AFP reports that its team saw crowds gathering at the site, taking photos of themselves, and expressing wonder at Gassama’s antics.

”I don’t think I can thank you enough for your steadfastness under very difficult circumstances. It is not easy to defend this administration and more importantly, to defend me. But your consistency is giving me a lot of confidence and I know you are paying the price physically, mentally and materially because the opposition now is are sitting on incredible resources, which I’m afraid we cannot get at it all. For that reason, they are sponsoring mischief from different angles, which in spite of the incumbency of the government, we cannot absolutely stop that. It is you people, that are quietly and openly fighting it and I cannot thank you enough for that,” he said

He also told the group members that the opposition looted so much money that his administration might not be able to recover.
