Libya's gaming craze: PUBG consuming Libya's youth

Life is a game for Libyans seeking an escape from war.

    Player Unknown's Battlegrounds, or PUBG as it is known, is based on a theme of the survival of the fittest.

    It is attracting many young Libyans, who are comparing it with life in their country, where renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar's forces continue an offensive against the United Nations-recognised government.
