Turkish police detained more than two dozen Libyans after they occupied and ransacked the Libyan consulate in Istanbul on Friday to protest at a lack of financial support from their government while in Turkey for medical treatment. “We detained a total of 32 Libyans. They complained they haven’t received money for months,” Osman Yildirim, police chief for the downtown Beyoglu district of Istanbul, told Reuters. He said the Libyans believed they were entitled to receive 250 euros a month from the consulate while they were in Turkey for treatment, not just for themselves but for each accompanying family member.
