Security situation in Libya deteriorates

The residence of the newly elected prime minister in Libya was attacked by gunmen who fired grenades onto the property. The safety and security situation in Libya is deteriorating since militia groups that formed in 2011 refuse to disarm.

Any foreigner in Libya could be mistaken for an employee of a government or a non-governmental organization and could be targeted for attack or kidnapping. The United States has issued a warning to citizens in Libya to depart immediately.
