UN delays Libya peace talks

The United Nations postponed peace talks between Libya’s warring factions which had been scheduled for Monday without announcing a new date.
The talks had originally been slated for 9 December but have been repeatedly delayed as fighting has intensified between the beleaguered internationally recognised government and Islamist-backed militias.
The UN mission spokesperson Samir Ghattas told Libyan media late on Sunday that efforts were continuing to get the talks back on track.
More than three years after dictator Muammar Gaddafi was toppled and killed in a Nato-backed revolt, the country remains awash with weapons and powerful militias, and has rival governments and parliaments.

The UN Special Representative Bernardino Leon in Libya chaired a first round of talks between rival lawmakers in the oasis town of Ghadames in September.
