Background Information

Weekend days are Fridays and Saturdays .  Muslim Calendar: the dates used to calculate the occurrence of Muslim public holidays in Libya are determined by the Libyan Center for Remote Sensing and Space Science, or LCRSS. Over the last few years, Nigeria and Libya, have often declared the beginning of Hijra months earlier than all other Muslim countries. This is particularly true of the start of the month of Ramadan and of the Eid al Fitr public holiday, in some cases (eg. 2008) even declaring the month to begin before the New Moon had occurred.  Libya International Codes LY and LBY (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .ly (ICANN national top-level internet domain). Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Libya information and news: Central Bank of Libya (Libya central bank), UnitedHealthcare Global (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Libya maps, demographics and economic statistics), and Wikipedia (includes Libya commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).
