Detainees at a notorious prison in Libya are suffering abuse at the hands of militias led by warlord Khalifa Haftar.
Libya’s General Haftar has become powerful enough to move on Tripoli and he owes that strength to a group of international backers who peddle the narrative that he is fighting terrorism.
The city of Derna in Libya is under siege as civilians suffer a humanitarian crisis and the international community is either a party to the violence or ignoring it.
The claim by Khalifa Haftar, commander of the eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA), if verified, would signal an important step in the LNA's bid to consolidate control of the eastern part of the country.
At least 16 Egyptian policemen were killed in the attack which occurred two weeks ago.
The hour-long assault that hit the eastern city of Derna also wounded at least 17 people who appeared to all be civilians, a medical source said.
