Libya warlord is backed by west and its Arab allies are declared on UN backed government



The warlord hailed by the west and Arab autocrats as a potential unifier of Libya has just been on the country's UN-backed interim leader, issuing a warrant for his arrest on "terrorism" charges as well as hammering the country's capital with airstrikes.

For years, Khalifa Haftar – a self-declared field marshal leading an army of young fighters – had the blessing of France, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia as he fought against Islamist militias in the country's east.

But he stunned many of his backers this month when he launched a surprise assault on Tripoli, vowing to control the city, and upending plans for peace talks.
