Libyan leader arrives in Algeria following peace talks

Libyan presidency council leader Fayez Al-Sarraj flew in to Algiers on Wednesday to be briefed on a conference held by Tripoli’s neighbours on Tuesday about the ongoing war in Libya.
Sarraj was briefed by Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal and its Maghreb, African and Arab affairs minister, Abdelkader Messahel about a meeting between ministers from Egypt, Tunisia, Sudan, Niger and Chad in Algiers.
Tuesday’s meeting saw the neighbours support Sarraj’s government but called for an authority that recognises all of Libya’s factions, including east Libyan renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar.
Sarraj laid a wreath at the memorial in honour of those who died in the Algerian war of independence against French colonialists which lasted between 1954 and 1962.
This comes after 15 fighters loyal to Sarraj’s rival, General Haftar were killed on Monday in a new offensive against Islamist jihadi fighters in Benghazi.
