Libya demands urgent answers over French missiles found at pro-Haftar base

Libya s internationally recognised government has demanded urgent answers after Paris conceded French missiles were found at a base used by strongman Khalifa Haftar whose forces are fighting to take over the capital Tripoli. Foreign Minister Mohamad Tahar Siala has asked French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian to urgently explain how the missiles reached Haftar s forces, when they were delivered and how , according to a ministry statement. Haftar in April ordered his self-styled Libyan National Army on an offensive to take the Libyan capital from the UN-recognised Government of National Accord. The battle is the latest turmoil to rock the North African country which has been caught up in fighting between rival forces since the fall of leader Moamer Kadhafi in 2011. Siala also demanded to know the quantities of weapons, whose existence (in Libya) contradicts the French government declarations... of support to Tripoli s national unity government.
