Tripoli, 31 July 2013:
Interior Minister Mohamed Sheikh has been on an official visit to the east of the country . . .[restrict]to look at how security can be improved.
Sheikh went to the Emsaad border crossing and met with security personnel there to discuss current issues with the crossing, ministry spokesperson Rami Kaal told the Libya Herald. The border was recently closed following the escape of over 1,000 convicts from Kuayfia Prison near Benghazi.
He also inspected a new premises being built at the border crossing, which is apparently 95 percent complete.
In Benghazi, Sheikh met with senior military and security personnel, including the head of the city’s Joint Security Room, Mohammed Al-Sharif. He also handed over ten armoured vehicles to the Benghazi Security Directorate, to boost safety and security in the city. Another ten such vehicles had been handed over just a few days earlier, Kaal added.
