Dozens Killed as Drone Attack at Wedding in Libya

At least 41 people have been reported killed and dozens injured  after an air attack hit a wedding ceremony in southwestern Libya.

Reports said forces loyal to the warlord Khalifa Haftar launched the attack on Sunday in the town of Murzuq.

Nearly 1,100 people have been reported killed since Haftar, based in eastern Libya, launched an offensive against the capital Tripoli on April 4.

On Saturday, Libya’s UN-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA) said it had downed an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) of Haftar’s forces.

UN envoy Ghassan Salame has proposed a ceasefire for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, which starts around August 11, and has called for relaunching negotiations.
