UN, WHO call for a ceasefire in Libya’s Tripoli

The World Health Organisation says 264 people have now died and 1,266 others have been injured in clashes between the eastern-based army and the UN-backed government’s forces around Libya’s capital Tripoli.

The WHO and the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) have both called for a temporary ceasefire and asked all parties to respect international humanitarian law.

The latest call for a ceasefire comes as Eastern Libyan forces said on Monday that they would intensify an assault on Tripoli.
