MEDIA ADVISORY - UNSMIL Alerts Media, Social Network Users of A Misleading Facebook Page
Tripoli, 15 April 2013 - The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) alerts the media and social network users in Libya and abroad of a Facebook Page that introduces itself as "Security Council/Libya Branch/The Office of Fighting Crime" and falsely uses the name of a major organ of the United Nations and the UN logo.
