Fighting between supporters of Muammar Gaddafi and opposition troops continued in March and April in Libya, resulting in hundreds of civilian and military deaths. The United Nations began to enforce a “no fly zone” intervention, and many nations imposed sanctions against Gaddafi’s government over the violence against civilian protestors.

Hundreds of thousands of Libyans were fleeing the civil war to Tunisia and Egypt, causing a humanitarian crisis at the borders.
