EU extends sanctions on Libyan parliament head

United Nations' envoy to Libya Martin Kobler (L) shake hands with the head of the internationally-recognised Libyan parliament, Aguila Saleh, in the eastern city of Tobruk on April 18, 2016The EU extended on Friday by six months the sanctions against the head of Libya’s internationally recognised parliament as well as two former officials, for blocking peace efforts by failing to get behind the UN-backed unity government. Libya has had rival administrations since mid-2014 when a militia alliance took over Tripoli, setting up its own authority and forcing the recognised parliament to flee to the remote east. The other two ex-officials facing a new round of sanctions are Khalifa Ghweil and Nuri Abu Sahmein — both former top figures in an unrecognised authority that has since ceased to function.
