After deadly self-killing incidents in east Libya, suicides shift to western region

Zliten, western Libya

A young man aged 20 years old killed himself in an act of suicide in Zliten, western Libya on Monday.

This new suicide case is the first in the western region of Libya after about 12 persons hanged themselves in Al-Bayda city in eastern Libya since the start of this month, according to sources from the city.

Meanwhile, a state of mind-absence is descending on the city of Al-Bayda with different conclusions as to what could be the reason for the growing number of suicides only since the beginning of March 2017, reaching over 11 with the new case, including a nine-year-old child.

At one point, the eastern government blamed Charlie Charlie game for the suicides, then it said “our teams are still investigating into the horrendous cases.”
