Tripoli, 31 October 2013:
Hundreds of people gathered in town and city squares across the country this morning to . . .[restrict]pray for rain.
They were responding to a call from Awqaf – the Islamic Affairs committee of the General National Congress (GNC) – for people to get together and pray for rain at 10 am today. The request came in response to a particular lack of rain this year and an unseasonably hot October. [/restrict]
