Libya

Up to 2000 members of the Libyan National Army will be sent to the United Kingdom for training by the British Army at Bassingbourn Barracks in Cambridgeshire. British Foreign Secretary William Hague underscored his government’s belief that a stable, open, and democratic State of Libya contributing to wider regional stability and security is in the United Kingdom’s interest. The Libyan government has also regained full control of its Interior Ministry from an armed group that had taken over the compound, protesting against an armed government body known as the Supreme Security Committee.
