Fighting Continues in Tripoli

Fighting between Libya’s internationally recognized government and the Libyan National Army continued, Wednesday, May 15, outside of Tripoli as European Union foreign ministers call for a cease-fire.

READ MORE: European Union foreign ministers are calling for an immediate cease-fire in Libya and for the warring parties in the strife-torn North African state to return to negotiations to resolve their differences.

Meeting in Brussels Monday, the ministers warned that the fighting raging around Tripoli, which began last month when forces loyal to the country's would-be strongman, Khalifa Haftar, launched an assault on the Libyan capital, threatens international peace and security.
