The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – The World Health Organization stated today that, as of 28 April, 345 people have been killed and 1,652 wounded during the ongoing fighting in Tripoli between the Libyan National Army (LNA) and militias affiliated with the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA).

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said on Monday that 42,000 people have been internally displaced in the aftermath of the conflict.

Along with a call for an immediate cease-fire, U.N. humanitarian officials say they urgently need more than $10 million to keep helping beleaguered civilians in Libya. The officials say they have received just 6% of pledges so far.
