Libya peace agreement reached


Warring Libyan factions meeting in Tunisia have reached an agreement on ending the political deadlock that has plagued the country since Muammar Gaddafi’s overthrow.

Awad Mohammed Abdul-Sadiq, the first deputy head of the Tripoli-based General National Congress says the agreement is a historic moment that Libyans, Arabs and the world was waiting for.

Congress officials had been holding talks in the suburbs of Tunis for several days with delegates from the internationally recognised House of Representatives.

A member of the congress delegation says the agreement will set up a new body to choose a committee which will nominate a prime minister within 15 days, while another committee will conduct a review of Libya’s constitution.
