Libya fighting: Two Turkish nationals detained by Haftar's forces

More than 340 people have been killed in the battle for the capital since fighting started about a month ago.

    On Monday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called renegade commander Khalifa Haftar's advance towards Tripoli a plot against Libya's people.

    Ankara also announced that it backs Libya's UN-recognised government.

    The development comes amid the detention of two Turkish nationals by forces loyal to Haftar.

    Anas El Gomati, the director of Tripoli-based Sadeq Institute, joins Al Jazeera to discuss this.
