Libya- Army officers appointed to take over two powerful militias in Benghazi
Army officers have been appointed to take over two powerful militias in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, after the president ordered that all militias join the armed forces or disband. The move reflects increasing pressure on the government to control or disband the country's militias, many of which it had relied upon for securing Libya in the turmoil following last year's ouster of Muammar Gaddafi. The military also took over at least one compound being used by the armed groups in Benghazi. Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel Hamid reports from Benghazi.
