European Union pledges 100m euros to aid Libyan unity govt
« on: January 10, 2016, 02:20:07 PM »

The European Union?s foreign policy chief has unveiled a 100 million euro ($109 million) aid package for Libya?s fledgling unity government.

Federica Mogherini announced the aid deal at a joint press conference with Libyan Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj in Tunis, the capital of neighboring Tunisia, where the unity government is temporarily based.
Mogherini condemned Thursday?s mass killing of officers and called security ?the greatest challenge Libya faces.?
An affiliate of the Daesh extremist group in eastern Libya claimed responsibility for the attack in Zliten, when an attacker detonated a truck bomb beside a police training center.

Mogherini, who spent Friday in talks with senior Libyan officials, said EU nations would offer Libya ?technical and logistical? support for battling extremists, but no troops on the ground.

Libya slid into chaos following the 2011 toppling and killing of former ruler Muammar Qaddafi.
Meanwhile, a major power plant in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi was attacked by militants, an army commander and a plant employee said on Saturday.
