The Libya Gazette
The country I chose is Libya. Libya is located between Egypt Tusnia and Algeria. Libya is mostly dry barren desert with plateaus. Libya was discovered in 1951. It has an abundance of natural gas and petroleum. 2/1/73 Israeli fighter planes shot down a Liberian airline 114 killing over 100 people. Many people lost loved ones on that horrific event. Libya is 90% desert and is the only country with a solid color flag. On of their main traditions is the Traditional dress of Libya.
Silt is small particles of rich soil. Silt is sometimes lost when there is a flood but other times the flood waters are good for the crops because new silt is being brought from other farms. When silt is running low farmers rely on chemical fertilizers and the fertilizer is getting into rivers or creeks.
