Eastern Libyan authorities order a plane from Misrata to land in Benghazi

Eastern Libya authorities forced a civilian plane to land for security check on Thursday shortly after take-off from the city of Misrata, which is under the control of Tripoli’s rival government, authorities said. The 90-minute stop of the Libyan Airlines plane signals competition between the two warring parties for control of Libya’s institutions and infrastructure, part of a rift that has negatively affected UN-led peace efforts.
