Flag of Libya.svg
In Libya, February 17 is officially designated as Revolution Day. In 2011, the Arab Spring spread to Libya, and the end of the dictatorship of Muammar Gaddafi. The country has been engulfed in turmoil and civil war ever since, with rival groups seeking to fill the power vacuum he left, not to mention a major humanitarian crisis, with scores of people fleeing the country.

According to The Economist Intelligence Unit, its capital, Tripoli, is the 136th most livable city in the world, with Lagos, Port Moresby, Dhaka, and Damascus. The situation is very bleak there. Open Doors ranks it as the world's seventh worst persecutor of Christians. Since 2011, they have been targeted by people traffickers, and face discrimination from radical Islamic extremists, and the government.
