Tripoli Medina

This house is in the old medina and the red writing and 'X' on it means that it has been closed down by the government and the inhabitants moved on. There are several buildings thus marked in this area and it usually means there have been nefarious goings-on. This is a poor part of town that attracts migrant workers both legal and illegal, with all the attendant problems. When the house is deemed fit again for habitation green writing is added over the red.
