Libyan women are suffering from a rise in gender-based violence and a lack of trained midwives, making childbirth more hazardous.
That’s according to Georges Makram Georgi, from the UN’s Population Fund (UNFPA).
He said the problems stem from conflict and instability that’s plagued the country since the fall of Muammar Gaddafi, in 2011.
