Angolan club Petro Atletico booked their place in the CAF Champions League quarter-finals despite being held to a 0-0 draw away to Libyan side Al Hilal in their penultimate Group C clash on Friday evening. The result in Benghazi means the Angolan champions progress to the last eight of the competition , having established an unassailable lead at the top of their group. Petro went into the game knowing just a point would be enough to seal qualification, and they produced a disciplined defensive performance to earn the point they required. Al Hilal enjoyed the lion’s share of possession and chances, but found Petro goalkeeper Hugo Marques in inspired form as he made several important saves to keep a clean sheet. In the end, Petro held on relatively comfortably to extend their unbeaten record in the group to four matches.

The report of the study was prepared by analysing 50 types of information on each of the 557 Bangladeshis who returned from Libya. Besides, many people went from Dhaka to Istanbul-Dubai to Libya, from Dhaka to Qatar to Libya, from Dhaka to Dubai-Syria to Libya and few people went directly to Libya from Dhaka. However, even after all these, this trend of crossing the Mediterranean Sea and going to Libya in Europe's dream is not stopping, it said. Some 144 Bangladeshis returned from Libya on Thursday. There is often the case of boat capsize on way from Libya to Italy across the Mediterranean Sea.

Thirteen years have passed since Libya’s pivotal Arab Spring uprising in February 2011, yet the nation still finds itself ensnared in a web of political discord, rampant corruption and ascendant militias that have effectively transformed into quasi-state actors. Amid this fragmented landscape, European governments are seeking to deepen their oil and gas partnerships with Libya, largely to diversify away from Russian energy supplies. Yet by neglecting these internal factors, they may jeopardize their own objectives as well as Libya’s own path to political stability and economic recovery. Though violence has been minimal since a U.N.-brokered cease-fire in October 2020, their standoff has delayed elections to unify the government that were originally slated for December 2021. In the meantime, the country’s state of limbo has hamstrung its prospects for progress and growth.

According to the minister, China is financing a 30 billion dollar (28 billion euro) project in Libya to build subways through the BFI consortium. Libyan sources of “Agenzia Nova” in Tripoli they reported that at present no Chinese investments have started in the North African infrastructure sector. However, it would be wrong to underestimate the role that China has played and is still playing in Libya. But it is above all in the infrastructure sector, the trademark of Beijing's "turnkey" projects, that China has shored up its presence in Libya. The chaos of the civil war blocked everything, but a possible stabilization (or partition) of the country could restart the projects.

Armed groups that have been controlling Tripoli for more than a decade have agreed to leave Libya’s capital. The deal comes after a series of deadly clashes in the city in recent months. Libya is currently divided between the internationally recognised government in the west, led by interim Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah in Tripoli, and an administration in the east run by military strongman Khalifa Haftar. He said once they had left the capital other cities would follow, noting there “will be no more checkpoints and no more armed groups” on roads. AdvertisementThe deal will see at least five armed groups quit Tripoli by the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan on 9 April, including one based in an area where 10 people were killed over the weekend.

Protests were expanded on Thursday and saw the participation of employees from other public administrations and institutions. The matter is to be discussed during the government session on Friday, as an item outside the agenda. Retired soldiers in Tripoli protested in front of the central bank’s branch in the city and blocked access to the administrative complex. Their demands include calculating a unified percentage of the actual value of the pre-2019 salaries for all of the public sector and canceling all of the increases, bonuses and funds that have been given to certain categories of public sector employees. The supply of food is also in question after employees at the Ministry of Agriculture went on strike, along with consumer protection inspectors.

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Major armed factions remained visible on the streets of Libya's capital Tripoli on Thursday after the Government of National Unity said they had agreed to withdraw from checkpoints and stop patrols over the coming weeks. Myriad armed forces have jostled for position in Tripoli since a 2011 NATO-backed uprising that unseated long-time ruler Muammar Gaddafi and led to years of chaos, warfare and insecurity. Interior Minister Emad Trabulsi announced on Wednesday that the main armed factions operating in Tripoli had agreed to remove their forces before the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, which is expected around April 10. However, even if armed factions become less visible on the streets, any substantive withdrawal is seen as unlikely without broader agreements on Libya's long-term political future. Long convoys of military vehicles with mounted heavy weapons frequently patrol key streets in central Tripoli, setting checkpoints at traffic intersections and sometimes triggering gunfights with rival forces.

The militias they control Tripoli for over a decade they would have agreed to leave the capital of Libya by April 9th, at the end of the sacred month of Ramadan. “During the coming period, the capital will be cleared of all militias, with enforcement starting after the holy month of Ramadan (which begins March 10),” Trabelsi said. Following the overthrow of the regime of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 and the lack of security created subsequently, Libya has been plagued by internal conflicts and political chaos. The minister also denied taking sides or supporting specific figures in the current political dispute, reiterating that he "only supports citizens" and rejects military mobilization. The clashes occurred in an area under the control of the stability support militia, led by Abdul Ghani al Kikli, and affiliated with Prime Minister Dabaiba's Gun.
