Libya's east tests muscle with oil shipment, troop dispatches | Reuters

TUNIS/BENGHAZI, Libya By defiantly attempting to export their own oil and dispatching troops towards the centre of the country, Libya's eastern factions may be gambling on force as they bid for a larger stake under a U.N.-backed unity government. It could be a costly bet, one that ignites renewed conflict between east and west over territory, slashes oil production, and pushes Libya closer to a split that has threatened the country since the uprising that ousted Muammar Gaddafi five years ago. The unity deal, signed in December despite opposition from hardliners, was meant to end the divide between rival governments in Tripoli and the east who have vied for control over the country and its oil resources since 2014, backed by competing factions of former anti-Gaddafi rebels #United States #Economy #Middle East #Africa #Security #Entertainment

Germany to consider stripping Islamic State fighters of citizenship - document | Reuters

RUST, Germany Germany's ruling coalition plans to look into stripping Islamic State fighters of their German citizenship to prevent them from coming back to the country, a draft document seen by Reuters on Wednesday shows. More than 800 people have travelled from Germany to Syria and northern Iraq in recent years and around 70 returnees took part in combat or military training there, the head of Germany's domestic intelligence agency said earlier this month. "To prevent jihadists from returning to Germany, we want to examine the legal possibilities for depriving people of German citizenship if they fight for a terrorist militia abroad and have another citizenship alongside their German one," read the draft document, which the coalition of conservatives and Social Democrats are to discuss on Thursday #Islam #Middle East #Crime #Security #Copyright
