SKHIRAT, Mar 21 : UN envoy to Libya Bernardino Leon urged rival Libyan lawmakers to try to nail down a political agreement by the weekend as they began three days of "decisive" talks on Friday.
As the talks got under way in Morocco, the Libyan government said loyalist forces had launched an offensive to "liberate" Tripoli, seized by Islamist-backed militia seized last summer.
"The government salutes the operations launched by army units south of Tripoli which constitute the start of an offensive to liberate Tripoli and its suburbs," it said on Facebook.
The announcement came as the Fajr Libya militia that controls Tripoli said it had clashed with a group of gunmen who infiltrated Aziziya, 35 kilometres (22 miles) south of Tripoli, and captured a number of them.     ?AFP
