Intervention in Libya 'essential' says Niger president

Niger's President Mahamadou Issoufou (L) welcomes French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian prior to their meeting at the presidential palace in Niamey on January 2, 2015A solution to the crisis in Libya is not possible without an international intervention, the president of neighbouring Niger said Friday. “I do not see how the armed terrorist militias can create the conditions for reconciliation among Libyans,” said President Mahamadou Issoufou. “An international intervention is essential to the reconciliation of all Libyans,” including supporters of former dictator Moamer Khadafi, who himself was deposed and killed in 2011 after an international military intervention. Since the overthrow of Khadafi’s regime, Libya has collapsed into a chaos of warring militias and rival governments, and is awash with weapons that travel in an arc of unrest through northern Mali and Niger.
