Tripoli, 26 March 2014:
There are reports this morning that Tripoli’s Airport Road has been partially blockaded.
“There were burning tyres across the . . .[restrict]road on the way to the airport. They were letting cars drive through the smoke but most people turned back,” an airport employee told the Libya Herald. “I have never seen the Airport Road so quiet.”
The blockade was about halfway down the road, he said, near the Ministry of Interior. Near the blockade, there were armed men wearing balaclavas, bandanas and bullet-proof jackets sitting on sandbags piled on the wall. He added that it was unclear whether this was related to the blockade.
Some adjacent roads also appeared to have been blocked, he said. [/restrict]
