The latest update from our assessment team bound for Libya confirms that they've crossed safely through the Libyan border. The humanitarian picture is still uncertain, and they're working to ascertain needs on the ground. It's been suggested that food shortages may soon be a problem in Eastern Libya.

You can stay up to date on their work by following them on Twitter: @cassandranelson and @stevemhaley.

Mercy Corps has also dispatched a team to Tunisia to assess the situation on the ground there. They're expected to arrive by Saturday. We'll keep you updated as we receive more information.
