The expansion of the terrorist group ISIL is affecting the delivery of humanitarian aid in Libya, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports.
The UN agency is working to reach millions of people in the North African country which has fractured in the five years since the 2011 overthrow of former President, the late Muammar Al-Qaddafi.
Dr Syed Jaffer Hussain, WHO representative in Libya, says ISIL now controls roads and territory in some parts of the country, thus making it “extremely difficult or impossible” to access people in these areas.
Laura Puigvert Alía in Geneva spoke to Dr Hussain, who is calling for urgent action to save lives.
