Libyan govt announces Tripoli ceasefire deal

In Libya, the rival militant groups have agreed to a ceasefire deal, after months of clashes that left more than one hundred people dead in south of Tripoli.

Libyan Interior Ministry said in Tripoli that the agreement has been signed by representatives of the militant groups.

The deal calls for rivals to implement a UN-brokered accord to form a joint security force of police from Tripoli and Tarhuna that will patrol the capital's southern suburbs.
