Libya conflict: Weapons arriving despite embargo

Fears of escalation in violence in Libya, as reports suggest arms build-up by forces loyal to renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar.

    Concerns are growing in Libya that the forces loyal to renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar may be preparing to renew full-scale fighting, despite a ceasefire that has loosely been in place for three weeks.

    Analysts say Haftar has received large supplies of weapons from the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

    On the other side, Turkey has sent naval frigates, troops and weapons to support the internationally-recognised government.
