Libyan army claims control of large Islamist camp in Benghazi

BENGHAZI Libya (Reuters) - Libya's army and its allies have taken control of one of the largest camps of Islamist forces in the eastern city of Benghazi, military officials said on Friday. Gaining control of the camp, the first to be set up by rebels who helped topple Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, would mark further significant progress for the army after taking Benghazi's airport. Libya is divided between rival tribes and political factions with two governments vying for legitimacy since an armed group from the western city of Misrata seized Tripoli in August, forcing the internationally-recognized Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni to move to the east. #facebook #India #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Army #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #opinion
