Why are British C-17s flying to Libya at night?

AFRICA, LIBYA, POLITICS, POWER, RELATIONS, Security, UK
For several years now Libya has been involved in a civil war between the Government of National Accord (GNA) based in Tripoli & the House of Representatives based in Tobruk which you may have seen commonly referred to as the LNA due to the Libyan National Army doing the majority of the fighting for the House of Representatives. More recently it has been noted that the Royal Air Force has been making C-17 flights from Brize Norton to Libya. With C-17s landing at air bases near Tripoli within GNA-controlled territory.

Jacob Zuma can still rescue Libya – Says Museveni

Jacob Zuma can still rescue Libya – Says Museveni

AFRICA, African Union, HUMAN INTEREST STORIES, INTERNATIONAL, LIBYA
KAMPALA, Uganda President Museveni is lucky in at least two ways. One: We, Ugandans, are mostly idiots. The way he freely uses the word suggests that he is only being polite not to describe the mass of Ugandans as idiots; for there is overwhelming evidence that we are more empty-headed than the Western primates trying to teach him democracy.  For instance, at this of all times, how could we decide (or accept) to enlarge Parliament and the local councils, instead of scaling back? Luck number two: This degenerate gluttonous thing called NRM thinks that stagnation is stability. It cannot even imagine Uganda collapsing into a failed state. The way Zimbabwe failed. The way Libya failed. Or fail another way. So the NRM is very happy with Mr Museveni. At a cost of Shs...

SOS Méditerranée and commercial vessels searched the area on Thursday only to discover several bodies floating around the deflated rubber dinghy but no survivors. This would be the largest loss of life recorded in the Central Mediterranean since the beginning of the year. So fa...
