Libya sides told to restore truce



The EU on Friday called on Libya’s warring sides to establish a permanent truce and return to UN-led talks to prepare for quick elections. Meanwhile, nine loyalist fighters were killed in clashes with Haftar forces in the south of Tripoli, the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord said on Friday. Nearly 1,100 people have been reported killed since eastern commander Khalifa Haftar, based in eastern Libya, launched an offensive against the capital Tripoli on April 4. “The European Union and its member states are united in demanding that all Libyan parties commit to a permanent cease-fire,” EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said.— AFP
