Former militia fighters join Libya army

Many of the powerful revolutionary militias that ousted Muammar Gaddafi are now operating under the Libyan army.

    Inside Libya’s capital of Tripoli, there are no more civilian militias. Outside of the capital, many of the powerful military groups in the nation of six million are now operating under the Libyan army.

    But while Libya’s heavily armed revolutionary militias are increasingly within the official defence force, some remain out of control.
