Italy's ambassador to Libya Giuseppe Perrone said that his country will finance a € 2 million project to support garbage collection and waste management in Tripoli.

"Let’s protect the environment together and make the make the Bride of the Sea even more beautiful," Perrone tweeted Monday.

Like other cities in Libya, Tripoli is suffering from the accumulation of garbage in the streets amid the failure of official bodies in the state to find a solution to this long-standing problem.
