Libyan armed groups refuse to cede power

Building new army to fill the post-Gaddafi security vacuum shows power of the gun is stronger than law.

    Building a new army in post-war Libya is proving to be a slow and difficult process.

    Scores of armed groups are refusing to hand power to the state, which is making it difficult to build a new army to fill the security vacuum left after the fall of the Gaddafi regime.

    It seems in Libya, the power of the gun is stronger than the law.
