The Fezzan Anti-Corruption Group held a protest on Sunday outside the Municipal Council of Sabha, demanding the dismissal of the director of the Sabha oil depot and for tighter control on fuel stations as well as securing the route of fuel trucks to the southern region.

The protesters described in a statement the situation as "catastrophic" after prices of gasoline scourged to 3 dinars per liter and cooking gas cylinder skipped to 40 dinars due to lack of fuel, and black market control on fuel trade in the district.
