Europe Split on Response to Libyan General's Tripoli Offensive

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called on Libyan strongman Khalifa Haftar to "immediately end" his offensive to capture Tripoli from the country's UN-backed government, while Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has called for a ceasefire. France, however, has reportedly blocked an EU statement calling on the Libyan general to end his offensive.

Forces loyal to renegade General Khalifa Haftar and Libya’s UN-based government fight for control of the capital.
