Bani Walid, LibyaBani Walid — "Bani Walid" redirects here, IMHO no ambiguity. Note: also the category is named in that way. --Dэя-Бøяg 21:13, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Bani Walid Airport is a structure related to the city of B.W., so the primary topic is the city itself (two examples: Leicester railway station is secondary to Leicester as Ljubljana Airport to Ljubljana). Bani Walid District was a district, from 2001 to 2007, now merged into Misurata's one... But wp still has various articles about towns and homonym districts/provinces/counties with town's title without disambiguation. IMHO the town may be considered as the primary topic. Regards. --Dэя-Бøяg 13:02, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply. I think I'll go with weak support. Clearly primary over the airport and the district is now defunct, so I think it's probable that the majority of the people searching for "Bani Walid" are looking for the town. Jenks24 (talk) 15:08, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
