Tunis, 9 January 2017:
Tripoli has been ranked the world’s second worst city in which to live, behind Damascus.
The UK-based Economist Intelligence Unit’s “Global Liveability Ranking” assesses 140 different cities. Among the measurements taken are healthcare, education, infrastructure, safety and the threat of terrorism.
“Although few could currently argue that Damascus and Tripoli are likely to attract visitors,” said the EIU, “ their inclusion in the survey reflects cities that were deemed relatively stable just a few years ago.”
Right behind Tripoli in the nine worst cities league was Lagos, followed by Dhaka in Bangladesh, Papua New Guinea’s Port Moresby and then Algiers. The other three were Karachi, Harare and Douala in Cameroon.
