Libya's UN-recognised forces retake strategic Haftar base

Gharyan is back under the control of the UN-recognised government after being used as a base to launch attacks on the capital Tripoli.

    Forces allied to the UN-recognised government in Libya are in full control of Gharyan, just south of the capital, Tripoli.

    Soldiers recaptured the city after weeks of fighting with forces allied to the warlord Khalifa Haftar.
