Question to people actually in Libya at the moment. Knowing what you know at the monent, being on the ground and witnessing things 1st hand. if you were in my shoes, would you still Travel to Libya?
At the moment i would stay right where you are. Several companies already started evacuating relatives of employees. Think about the position of your family back home, they will experience it a bit different then you being here. If i had the choice i wouldn't take the risk.
Several companies evacuating dependents. I know of two operators who have suspended drilling operations and are bringing their guys in off the rigs - not heresay, we have people on the rigs who are coming back. We are moving families out and expat staff are on stand by to leave. We will not bring anyone else into the country.
@Mojo Anything in and around Green square is most definitely PRO and nothing to worry about.
Around 8 o clock all shops were abruptly closed in front of Sultan Gym and we were asked to leave the gym immediately. On my way back to Janzour just before the bridge police truck came from behind and stopped 2 vehicles which were going to Tunis and told the other cars not to stop. All the shops that I passed by were closing if not closed already.
Now there is a statement that Son of the Leader will address the nation in some time.
Our company just decided to evacuate. That mean 25 people from Tripoli, Misurata and Ghums will be evacuated. Decision has been made by our local agent based upon several shootings near down town. The shootings are confirmed by one of our people.
