'Historic' ceasefire deal reached in Libya - UN

The United Nations announced on Friday that the negotiations between the two battling sides in the Libyan military have produced a "historic" agreement, establishing a permanent ceasefire and ending a war that has torn apart the country since 2011.

The UN called the deal "an important turning point towards peace and stability in Libya," revealing that the signing ceremony took part in Geneva earlier in the day.

Violence in the country erupted in 2014 following the death of Libya's leader Muammar Gaddafi, causing a civil war to start. The conflict has since lasted between the Libyan government, so-called the Government of National Accord (GNA), and the Islamist General National Congress (GNC), also known as the National Salvation Government.
