Libya 2015

Libya, Ramadan 2015


Four years after the fall of the Gaddafi regime, Libya has no united government. In the East, the Tobrouk government is recognized by the international community. In the West, the Tripoli government, formed by various former revolutionnary militias (Fajr Libya / Dawn of Libya), tries to impose its authority. At the same time, the Islamic State (ISIS) has gained power in various places. This political instability is driving migrants from Africa to cross the country, before trying to go to Europe. The ones who got arrested live in detention camps in very poor health conditions.
