Access for humanitarian aid workers throughout Libya is being discussed by the United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator for Libya, Rashid Khalikov and Libyan authorities.

African migrants flee Libya

Mr. Khalikov arrived in Tripoli, the capital of Libya over the weekend as the conflict continues in the North African country between its leader Muammar Qadhafi and pro-democracy rebels.

UN spokesman Farhan Haq has more.

“The Government has informed Mr. Khalikov that his mission would be granted access to locations outside Tripoli during his visit, including to areas of recent fighting. The Humanitarian Coordinator’s team has observed that Tripoli appears calm, with shops being open and people moving freely in the city. But it has also observed a large number of migrant workers forming long lines outside airport terminals and in makeshift camps outside the airport.”
