News In Brief:

The European Commission (EC) has announced that its Trust Fund for Africa has adopted a program to strengthen Libya's ability to manage its northern and southern border borders worth €46 million.

The money has been allocated to fund programs run by Italy in Libya to improve the efficiency of border and coast guards in controlling border crossings and addressing human smuggling issues to help stop the flow of illegal migration.

High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini said: "Security and stability in Libya are key for the Libyans, the region and Europe, and they come also by better managing the borders and strengthening the resilience of the population”.
