Tripoli: The Heart of Darkness


The Libyan capital, Tripoli has been seeing continuous blackened hours day and night for three days in a row due to power outages that are reasoned back to the clashes near Sirte, which put the power plants out of order, and also to the boiling hot weather in the city.

The Tripoli residents are complaining that the General Electricity Company is trying to carry out political agenda at their expense and by depriving them from electricity in the current wave of heat that is prevailing in Tripoli.

Meanwhile, Tripoli areas saw almost 10-12 continuous blackout hours each area in a different time from the other making it very difficult for people to lead a normal life in the prevailing summer opening in the country.
