Warplane strikes at western Libyan town Zintan

A war plane carried out air strikes on a western Libyan town allied with the internationally recognized government on Tuesday, in what officials charged was an attack by the rival government controlling Tripoli. Libya is increasingly divided, with Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni’s recognized government and his allies locked in a conflict with a rival faction that took over the capital and established its own self-declared government. The United Nations is negotiating a deal between the factions to stop the North African country’s slide into wider civil war, four years after the uprising that toppled leader Muammar Gaddafi.
