15 November 2011

Hundreds of men in civilian clothing, said to be members of Libya’s new army, were deployed to settle a dispute

Fighting between rival factions near the Libyan town of Al-Zawiya has killed at least 13 people. The factions are battling for control of a former military base area that was previously controlled by the murdered Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

Hundreds of men in civilian clothing, said to be members of Libya’s new army, were deployed for the first time to settle the dispute. A full army is expected to be formed once the new government is announced on 20 November. Abdel Hafiz Ghoga, a senior official in Libya’s National Transitional Council said on 14 November that the feud had been settled.
