Libyan plan to disband armed militias
Monday 24 September 2012
Libya's President has ordered all of the country's militias to come under government authority or disband, a move that appeared aimed at harnessing popular anger against the armed groups following the attack that killed US ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi.
The assault has sparked an angry backlash in the country against the myriad armed factions settled across the nation nearly a year after the end of the country's civil war to topple the Colonel Gaddafi's regime.
Speaking after Benghazi residents staged a mass demonstration against the militias, President Mohammed el-Megaref said armed groups operating outside the "legitimacy of the state" will be disbanded.
