LONDON (AlertNet) – The U.N. aid chief will launch an appeal on Monday for international funding to help those caught up in Libya’s escalating violence, including tens of thousands of migrant workers who have fled into neighbouring countries, a U.N. spokeswoman said on Thursday.
U.N. Emergency Relief Coordinator Valerie Amos plans to visit the border between Tunisia and Libya over the weekend. She will then head to Geneva to brief donor governments on Monday morning, and request their support for humanitarian operations in Egypt, Tunisia and Niger – the main destinations for migrants who have streamed out of Libya in recent days – as well as inside Libya.
