Rival Libya military leaders meet in Tripoli

Senior military figures from Libya’s rival eastern and western power bases have held an unprecedented meeting in the capital Tripoli, calling Tuesday for a unified command over their troops.

Two rival governments are currently vying for power, one based in Tripoli, the other in the central city of Sirte.

General Abdelrazzak al-Nadhouri, second in command of forces loyal to eastern strongman Khalifa Haftar, visited Tripoli on Monday and Tuesday to meet with his counterpart in the country’s west, General Mohammad al-Haddad.
