Warring factions fight for dominance in Libya

From Nine To Noon, 9:27 am on 7 November 2014

Three years after the fall of Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi, Libya is in chaos that some are calling civil war. There are two rival governments, with the UN-backed parliament declared invalid overnight by the country's Supreme Court. Tripoli is held by Libya Dawn militants who say they're in charge, fighting is intense in Benghazi, and the Parliament is having to meet in Tobruk, near the Egypt border. 400 people have died in fighting in the past three weeks. Freelance journalist Suliman Ali Zway, who is based in Tripoli, joins Kathryn to explain the situation.
