Libya "could Run Out of Life-Saving Medicines"

By John Lee.

A UN official has warned that Libya could run out of life saving medicines by the end of March.

Ali Al-Za'tari, the United Nations humanitarian coordinator for Libya, told Reuters:

"If there is no medication and medical supplies coming in that will be a real issue for Libya.

"Our estimation is that by the end of march, Libya may run out of life saving medications which will impact about one million people.”

He said 1.3 million people in Libya need humanitarian assistance, adding that NGOs are requesting food aid.
