UN back in Libya as unity govt asserts itself ahead of vote


TRIPOLI: The United Nations said its staff had returned to Tripoli and Libya’s unity government vowed further steps to assert its authority Sunday, on the eve of a crucial confidence vote. UN envoy Martin Kobler said his staff were back after leaving amid violence in mid-2014, three years after Libya descended into chaos following the NATO-backed uprising that killed dictator Moamer Kadhafi. Their arrival comes a day before the recognized parliament votes on the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA), supported by the international community in a bid to end years of chaos in the North African nation.
