Are foreign powers worsening the conflict in Libya? | Inside Story
Eight years since the fall of Libya's leader Muammar Gaddafi, the nation is once again at risk of an all-out war.
Libya's rival forces are intensifying their fight to take control of Tripoli.
Troops loyal to the UN backed government in the capital are trying to stop the advance of the warlord Khalifa Haftar, who began his offensive two weeks ago.
At least 120 people have been killed.
The UN says the fighting is undermining international peace efforts.
But behind the scenes, some Western and regional countries have been giving support to Haftar.
So, can these nations with competing interests work together to stop the violence?
