More news from Libya as militants have basically seized control and the Govt can do nothing to stop them…… If the US doesn’t get a plan together soon this is going to be very very bad
From the UK Daily Mail:
Libya’s toothless government today admitted it has lost control of capital Tripoli to rampaging Islamic militants running riot across the country.
As the country slides deeper into anarchy, former rebels – the very ones who together helped topple Muammar Gaddafi in a NATO-backed uprising in 2011 – are turning their guns on each other in the struggle for command of the country’s political agenda as well as its vast oil reserves.
The announcement comes a month after senior officials and the elected parliament fled to the remote eastern city of Tobruk as an alliance of armed factions led by forces from the western city of Misrata took control of Tripoli, having expelled a rival group.
And today prime minister Abdullah al-Thinni’s interim government, which resigned last week, conceded that most apparatus of control in the country’s capital have been overrun by the marauding militants.
