Libyan Rival Government Showdown Intensifies

The rival government in Libya is preparing to be sworn in later on Thursday as a showdown with the current administration seems set to intensify.

Fathi Bashaga is due to take the oath of office in Tobruk, but he has said that “the incumbent Prime Minister Abdulhamid al-Dbeibah has cut off Libyan airspace to prevent his ministers reaching the city in the east.


Mr.

Bashaga’s office also says that two ministers have been abducted while travelling by land.

A UN-backed roadmap to try to end the rift between ‘rival factions’ in Libya has been put in doubt since scheduled elections failed to go ahead in December.
