Libya govt accepts UN truce in Tripoli


Libya’s UN-supported government says it has accepted a cease-fire proposed by the UN aimed at halting combat in the capital, Tripoli, during the upcoming Eid Al-Adha.
Militias allied with the Tripoli-based government have been fighting since April against a military offensive to take the capital by the self-styled Libyan National Army. A spokesman for LNA did not answer phone calls seeking comment on Saturday. — AP
