Libya’s Tripoli government denounces latest ‘coup’ by Khalifa Haftar

The Tripoli-based Government of National Unity (GNA) on Tuesday denounced an umpteenth “coup” by its rival, East Libyan strongman, Marshal Khalifa Haftar, who had assured the day before that he had obtained the “people’s mandate” to govern the country.

In a brief speech Monday evening, Haftar announced that the general command of his self-proclaimed “army” had “accepted the will of the people and its mandate”, without specifying from which institution he had received the “people’s mandate”.
