The mayhem in Libya is a business opportunity for the most audacious, particularly those interested in any kind of illicit trade, including people trafficking which has grown considerably. Whether one looks at the humanitarian situation, or at politics or at security, the overwhelming impression is that Libya is sinking into the abyss. That is far from being the case, however. This inevitably results in the suffering of the population and in a political paralysis which the head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Ghassan Salamé, has been unable to overcome. In such circumstances, the short-term priority is simply to restore order and public services.
