The Islamist militant group Ansar al-Sharia has declared Benghazi an ‘Islamic Emirate’ after claiming to have taken total control of Libya's second largest city, seizing military barracks with rockets and ammunition. Political analyst and activist Sukant Chandan explains why Libya has descended into lawlessness.
Two people were shot dead when Libyan border guards opened fire to disperse hundreds of Egyptians and Libyans trying to cross into Tunisia to flee Libya's growing chaos. Hundreds of Libyan families and foreign workers have fled their homes after two weeks of clashes between rival Libyan militias over Tripoli's airport in the worst violence since the 2011.
