Ghat, 21 July 2015:
The Beida-based government of Abdullah Al-Thinni . . .[restrict]has called on Tuaregs and Tebus in Sebha to end their fighting. In an appeal today, it has told them that they must agree an immediate ceasefire, start listening to reason and engage in serious dialogue to end the conflict permanently.
The government also called on elders in the southern city to try and bring about a lasting cease-fire between the two communities.
The town was today relatively calm after yesterday’s clashes which left six dead people dead and eight wounded.
A source at Sebha medical centre said that four of the wounded were in a serious condition and had been airlifted to Tripoli because the centre could not treat them. It was suffering from an acute shortage of medical staff as well as f medical equipment and medicines, he said.
Leaders of the two communities had agreed a seven-day truce at the weekend but in the event it lasted not much more than one day.
Earlier government attempts to mediate a peace between the two groups have achieved nothing. [/restrict]
