Message from Thierry Meyssan after leaving the Rixos Hotel


Tripoli, 24 August 2011 at 9:30 p.m., Thierry Meyssan confirmed that he and Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya were among the group of journalists who were freed this afternoon from the Rixos Hotel - after several days of siege by NATO "rebel" forces - through the good offices of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). Their evacuation to Malta by sea has been scheduled for tomorrow, Friday, at noon.

Two months after his arrival in Tripoli, the president of Voltaire Network briefly commented about the situation he is about to leave behind as follows: "The center of Tripoli is occupied by the rebels. The population is cloistered inside their homes. Not joy, but terror. No freedom; only foreign occupation. "
