Travel warning to Libya

Irhal.com advises travelers planning to visit Libya at the moment, to do so with extreme caution. Violent clashes between protesters and security forces are continuing throughout the country, including in Tripoli.  Spontaneous demonstrations, violence, and looting are possible throughout the next several days.  

Smaller protests were staged Saturday night on the outskirts of the capital Tripoli, a stronghold of support for Gadhafi, but demonstrators were quickly dispersed by security men. Regardless, Irhal.com advises you, if you are currently in the country, to stay away from such danger zones. Besides Tripoli and Benghazi, the U.S. State Department issued a travel warning to American citizens, and listed five other cities that have seen demonstrations.

Unannounced security checkpoints and road and airport closures may occur throughout Libya, changing traffic patterns and flight availability without notice.  People in Libya also said they can no longer make international telephone calls on their land lines.

Stay safe.
