Arab League vows military support for Libya, no word on air strikes | Reuters

CAIRO The Arab League pledged military support on Tuesday to help Libya's internationally recognised government fight Islamic State, but did not publicly agree to a request for air strikes. A communique issued after an Arab League meeting in Cairo said there was an urgent need for an "Arab strategy" to fight Islamic State in Libya, but did not mention specifics. On Saturday, Libya's official government, based in the east of the country after a rival group pushed it out of the capital last year, asked fellow Arab states to conduct air strikes against Islamic State in the central city of Sirte where the hardline Islamists crushed rival fighters #Business #Egypt #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom
