Libya war


Much of Libya is dealing with war and anarchy since the 2011 overthrow of “long-time ruler” Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 by Islamists backed by US, French and UK air power and special forces.


At least 60 people have reportedly been killed after an attack on a military base in southern Libya following clashes between rival factions.

Most of those killed are linked to a faction allied to self-styled general Khalifa Haftar.

The town’s mayor, Ibrahim Zami, described some of the killings as a “slaughter”.
