Renegade Libya general urges sweeping reforms to end crisis

Former rebel fighters now intergrated into the Libyan army and guard the western entrance of the capital Tripoli on May 19, 2014A renegade Libyan general who has launched an assault against Islamists has warned the country has become a “terrorist hub” and called for creation of an emergency cabinet and holding legislative elections. Khalifa Haftar is garnering growing support among elements of the military, politicians and diplomats in a country still riven by instability three years after the overthrow of dictator Moamer Kadhafi. He even drew positive comments from the United States, where he spent 20 years in exile, though Washington has been quick to deny claims that it is backing him. “Libya has become a hub for terrorists who control power,” said Haftar, who has been branded an outlaw after his forces launched an assault Friday on the eastern city of Benghazi in which at least 79 people were killed.
