A high ranking security delegation made up of members of the Committee of Intelligence and Security Services of Africa (CISSA) arrived Sunday in Libya's capital Tripoli.

According to the Libyan News Agency (LANA), citing the Head of the Media Office of the Foreign Ministry, Ahmed Al-Arbad, the delegation will have a number of meetings with the authorities and officials concerned with illegal immigration.

He added that the delegation will visit a number of migrants' detention centers to have a look at their conditions and health problems until their turn for return to their home countries is due.

The delegation will also review with Libyan officials the security preparedness and the international support for the evacuation of the migrants from Libya.

CISSA is made up of 54 African countries and was founded in 2005. One of its goals is striking cooperation among African security and intelligence apparatuses to review security challenges in the continent.
