The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) has increased its appeal for the Libyan crisis to US$49.2 million dollars, urging the international donor community to not let up in responding to the crisis.
IOM director, William Lacy Swing, points out that the organisation is concerned at the plight of Libyans and migrants who are still stranded inside Libya.
Swing states that, “Those managing to get out, in particular Sub-Saharan Africans, are recounting to us terrible stories of targeting, physical violence and of being held back from leaving. We once again urge Libya to allow all those wanting to leave the country safe passage out."
