A woman and a child have died by drowning in the city of Sirte, due to severe turbulence in the sea currents, in the Zaafaran area.

The two bodies were recovered and they were transferred to Ibn Sina Teaching Hospital in the city, according to identical sources.

Despite repeated warnings from meteorological authorities to avoid swimming these days due to sea level fluctuations and charges along the Libyan coast, however, drownings have continued to occur since last Friday, with nearly 10 deaths in just four days.
