Tripoli, 22 January 2014:
The Prime Minister confirmed at today’s press conference that Sebha is now calm and that it . . .[restrict]was under control.
He confirmed that some military forces had arrived there yesterday and that more would be arriving today. Zeidan said that two Ministers, including the Justice Minister, as well as the Head of Intelligence, had visited Sebha.
He assured the public, saying that they should not be alarmed , adding that whilst there were still pockets of lawbreakers, they were only isolated pockets rather than huge numbers.
He explained that the new Libyan order had been lenient with these groups, leaving them to carry on with their lives amongst the rest of their local citizens, but now that they had used arms against the new state, the authorities had to take action. [/restrict]
