The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) has reported that the number of internally displaced people (IDPs) in Libya has risen to over 287,000 as of October 2014.

The worsening conflict has created a humanitarian crisis, with the UNHCR reporting on November 14th that intense fighting among rival armed groups in western, eastern and south-eastern Libya has forced more than 100,000 people to flee their homes over the past month. Benghazi is particularly badly affected.

The UNHCR reported that the rapidly deteriorating security situation in Libya was causing new waves of displacement, particularly on the western outskirts of Tripoli and in Benghazi. The UN and local crisis committees put the total number of people internally displaced in Libya at over 287,000, while the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre estimates that there were at least 327,000 IDPs in Libya as of October 2014. Other figures suggest the real number is approaching 400,000 people displaced since May 2014, almost 10% of the entire population.
