Description : Their passports and three months's wages are in Tripoli, at the headquarters of the firm, making it difficult for them to leave the country. The ICRC is looking for a solution for these 18 workers, who live together in a space that measures 25 square metres. Until one is found, the Libyan Red Crescent will continue to bring them rations of food.
