The people who have left Libya were the foreigners working in Libya like the English, Maltese, other Europeans, Chinese and Egyptians. They only stopped over in Malta till they got flights out to their respective countries so they are now mostly gone.

In answer to your question, no Malta is not full of Libyans and yes it is still safe to walk about at night

Twirl gave you the answer, but let the tourists tell you the rest

maltatoday.com.mt/news/national/tourists-gla…

Libyan workers are not Libyans !! They were all going home, to China and Pakistan, and used Malta as a safe port :-)

CNN and BBC twisted the news to exagerate the situation , and put Malta in a bad light when it was helping everyone to get back home safe .

Welcome to Malta

If anyone wants to have a look at Malta as if he is having coffee on the terrace of the Meridien in Sliema , all you have to do is look at this webcam

Today was a a hot spring day and you could barely walk on the seafront pavement due to the number of tourist enjoying the sunshine and the fresh breeze.

I will not post more on this post as it is getting boring to repet myself

BTW I realise they are not Libyans arriving in Malta but it does seem that the number of refugees arriving in Malta is quite high at the moment....

Hey now...Libyans are people just like the rest of us. Good for Malta for any help they give to others.
