Libya's General Authority for Endowments and Islamic Affairs in the Government of National Accord (GNA) published pictures showing preparations carried out by a number of mosques for Fajr prayers to be held on Wednesday.

Yesterday, the Presidential Council decided to allow mosques to perform Friday prayers, with the exception of Libya's southern region, provided they adhere to precautionary measures, physical distancing, and each worshiper using their own prayer rug.

The Presidential Council also decided to “extend the curfew from eight o'clock in the evening to six o'clock in the morning for another period of ten days, starting on Tuesday, with a complete 24-hour lockdown on Friday and Saturday and halting movement between cities," according to a statement.
