The musicians fleeing Libya for Italy for the ‘right to rap’ But that did not prevent Defence Minister Roberta Pinotti from hosting the commander, a one-time ally and later armed opponent of Libya’s late dictator Moamer Kadhafi. Haftar also met with Italy’s chief of defence staff, Claudio Graziano. Ms Pinotti reiterated Italian support for UN initiatives in Libya and urged all parties, including both Haftar and those loyal to the Government of National Unity, to reach a military solution. The unity government has struggled to establish its authority beyond the capital in a country scarred by conflict since the NATO-backed overthrow of Kadhafi. Libyan smuggler says human trafficking will continue despite Italy deal A life boat carries the bodies of refugees and migrants who died during the oversea journey. US drone strikes launched from Italy on Sunday killed 17 people at an alleged Isis transit camp south of the city of Sirte, according to the US military. The attacks, the first announced since US President Donald Trump took office in January, compounded hopes the Isis threat in Libya had been neutralized when the group’s forces were expelled from Sirte last year. At surprise talks in Paris in July, Haftar and the unity government’s head, Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj, agreed to a ceasefire and elections in the first half of next year.
Even as we continue our military operations today to protect civilians in Libya, we are determined to look to the future. We are convinced that better times lie ahead for the people of Libya, and a pathway can be forged to achieve just that. We must never forget the reasons why the international community was obliged to act in the first place.
As Libya descended into chaos with Colonel Muammar el-Qaddafi attacking his own people, the Arab League called for action.
The assault on Derna, which has a population of ,, by the forces of renegade General Khalifa Haftar, known as the Libyan National Army (LNA), is the latest episode in the internecine warfare.
The tough comments come a day after Libya’s elected parliament, allied to Thinni, suspended its participation in U. Thinni has been confined to a rump state in the east since a rival faction called Libya Dawn seized the capital Tripoli last year, reinstating an old assembly known as the GNC and setting up a rival government. Thinni and the House of Representatives, also based in the east, enjoy the recognition of world powers but anti-Western sentiment has been building up.
Many normal people demand military support in the power struggle with Tripoli, four years after the NATO-backed ousting of Muammar Gaddafi. Thinni has been facing pressure from army general Khalifa Haftar who has merged his forces with army troops in the east to fight Islamist groups. While the alliance has managed to win back some territory in Benghazi, Haftar has drawn criticism for calling in air strikes on civilian airports and seaports.
Frustrated with hardships in the east, where the conflict has made petrol, electricity and medicines scarce, protesters have demanded Thinni quit and hand power to a military council headed by Haftar. In another sign of pro-military sentiment, a committee of the House of Representatives on Tuesday voted to create the position of top military commander, its spokesman Farraj Hashem said. Lawmakers did not name anyone but analysts expect Haftar to get the job.
Some of his senior officers have already received official positions. The United Nations had planned to hold a new round in Morocco this week, after several sessions inside and outside Libya made little progress.

Culture[ edit ] Girl wearing the traditional dress of Siwa grinding salt The traditional culture of Siwa shows many features unusual in Egypt, some reflecting its longstanding links with the Maghreb and the fact that the inhabitants are of Berber origin. These were used to export dates and olives, bring trade goods, or carry pilgrims on the route which linked the Maghreb to Cairo and hence to Mecca.
The most visible and celebrated examples of this were the bridal silver and the ensemble of silver ornaments and beads that women wore in abundance to weddings and other ceremonies. A girl would give up the disc at a special ceremony at the Spring the day she was married. The jewellery, which was made by local silversmiths, comprised silver necklaces, earrings, bangles, hair ornaments, pendants and many rings. These pieces are decorated with symbols common to Berber people across North Africa designed to promote good health, fertility and to protect the wearer from misfortune.
Unlike other Egyptians, however, on Id al-Adha Siwis cook the skin of the sheep along with its innards as a festival delicacy, after removing the hair. The name is often misunderstood as a reference to “tourism”, but in fact predates tourism.

Report to the President: The United States and Libya destroyed the arsenal of chemical arms over three months, starting in November The arsenal included hundreds of bombs and artillery rounds filled with deadly mustard agent dating back to the regime of Moamer Gaddafi. The weapons were destroyed using a special oven in the desert. The technology came from a Swedish company, and the Libyan contractors were trained in Germany.
Libya isn’t completely free of potential chemical weapons. It still has some chemical precursor materials, dubbed Category 2 chemicals. Nearly tons of precursor materials for chemical weapons remain. These are fairly routine industrial grade chemicals which can be used to make chemical warfare agents as well, and that’s why they have to be destroyed. By the end of , at the latest, Libya aims to be free of chemical weapons and precursor materials – provided no more nasty surprises are discovered in the desert.

The Atiq Mosque in Awjila is the oldest mosque in the Sahara. Under the command of ‘Amr ibn al-‘As , the Rashidun army conquered Cyrenaica. The Berber tribes of the hinterland accepted Islam, however they resisted Arab political rule. When Caliph Harun al-Rashid appointed Ibrahim ibn al-Aghlab as his governor of Ifriqiya in , Libya enjoyed considerable local autonomy under the Aghlabid dynasty.
By the end of the 9th century, the Shiite Fatimids controlled Western Libya, and ruled the entire region in and appointed Bologhine ibn Ziri as governor. This act drastically altered the fabric of the Libyan countryside, and cemented the cultural and linguistic Arabisation of the region.
